Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car will not start up and the back wheels will not roll car had to sit 7 weeks
gentleman fell and ruptured a vert in his back after surgery it wont run when he
tries to start it

1 Answer


Seven weeks is not that long for a car to sit, but it is long enough for a battery to go dead. So get a fully charged battery in there. If rear wheels are locked up check the emergency brakes aren't set, after that it might just need some brake cleaner sprayed in the wheels. Rolls Royces are like any other car in the regard that they need maintenance too, this one sounds like it's overdue for some.
