When you go to turn your key and your car won't start, most drivers instinctively blame a bad battery -- but what if your car has only been sitting for a few hours? If you just came back from a trip and your car started up fine, there's no reason why the battery should suddenly be dead. That means something else is making it difficult to start your car. We can help figure it out at Archer Volkswagen! Our service team has compiled a list of the most common things that can cause this problem. However, this list is by no means exhaustive, so be sure to consult with one of our talented technicians to find out exactly what's wrong with your car. Below, we'll give you a little insight into what could be going wrong.
