My car did not start today after being parked for about a month, the car battery is new (a month old) I recharged but still nothing happened. What would be your best possible solution.

Check your main fuse. It's usually large and yellow. It may have popped when you were recharging your battery... I'm assuming that it ran fine before you parked it. Best case. It's also a 12Volt system. Did you use a 24V charger? If yes you may have big issues with the cars computer... Worst case.

A month isn't that long for a vehicle to sit. Unless you live in a very cold climate it honestly should have fired right up. Last Friday I took out my 2000 Grand Prix. I hadn't driven or started it since November 18. It cranked right up. Since I now won't be driving it until spring (April) I have the negative (-) battery cable disconnected to prevent the battery from going dead in the cold weather we'll be getting during the next 3 months. I'm leaning towards the main fuse as well or possibly a bad battery cable connection. HTH. -Jim
