Hello,

Has anyone with a 2014 ST ever had an issue with the car not wanting to start shortly after turning it off. If I leave it sit for an hour or so it'll start no problem but if not it will not start. This problem has gotten worse and the battery checks good. I have never once jumped the car and I can eventually start it after about 10-15 minutes of just turning on electrical power and lifting it sit for a few minutes than cranking it. With that the first time it happened after the car started back up the digital fuel gauge in the dash stopped reading fuel correctly and displays up to twice the normal fuel load that is onboard. Every time the car doesn't want to start the fuel reads becomes even more inaccurate. Also I just recently changed the batteries in both my key fobs so idk if that helps or not! Thank you in advance for any help.

Try checking the battery grounds. Often hard starting and strange electrical issues are due to corroded battery grounds or a defective battery.
