Probably check the battery first as these new style batteries are a problem to get full re-charged once totally drained,Does your charger have jump start option on it,would try that ,Let us know how you get on

You MAY need to reset the battery monitor sensor

Thanks for the reply it seems that the red terminal needed reseating
After computer was connected it could not connect to car 🚗 by reseating terminal cured the fault ?
