Default 2014 CX-5 won't start!


As the title says cx-5 won't turn on at all. This morning around 10am I tried to take it out to the gym and would not start the engine, on the dash all the lights came on and the car made a sputtering sound like it was trying to turn on. Lef the car alone for 4 hours tried again and this time nothing comes on, turns on, the speedometer would flicker the little sticks (i'm terribly sorry I know nothing about cars or parts!) and then just go back to 0. Reading online I'm getting different ideas is it a MAF problem, a dead battery, or is it much worse? Any advice or help would be great! I guess I'm just trying to get an idea of what could be wrong and get an idea of how much I'm going to pay for repairs. Thank you all in advance!

Don't expect the worst Irma! This sounds like a dead battery. I had the same thing happen to my 2013 a month ago. $75 for a Costco battery and you're back in business.

sounds like a dead battery. same thing happened to me. what did it for me was leaving an inverter plugged into the center console's cigarette lighter port. this port draws from the battery even when the car is off. i didnt drive my car all weekend and monday morning my car wouldn't start--had to jump it.
