So after sitting all winter, put the battery in and cranked and started up, started it about 7 times in that Time period no issues just a slightly longer crank. Leave to go do something and come back 2 hours later and it won't start at all and developed slow crank and battery was 12.6 still. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Also I might add, that when I came back I know longer heard the buzzing of the aftermarket fuel pump when in the on position like it normally does

Did you let it run awhile between cranks, to allow batt charge to restore?

Will it start normally with a jumpstart?

Maybe 10 mins, just find it weird that battery was still 12.6 and cranked fine when I first came back but no sound from fuel pump, when slow/no crank developed voltage was still good the first couple tries till it depleted

Sometimesvolts may be decent but it doesn't have enough amperage to start...but fuel pump shouldn't take much to hear.

Maybe to eliminate possibility of batt, take it to auto parts to get it load tested.

Yep. Sounds electrical.. Like charging system or wires to starter.

Hey...I'm experiencing something similar. Were you able to get it resolved?
