how does the 12v battery in the 2013 Fusion hybrid get charged? Only from the gas engine when it is running. It seems that if my car sits over two weeks without being drive, it has to be jumped to s
Love the car, never had a problem, 22k miles since new Jun 2013. But suddenly if the car sits too long without being driven, when you put the key in and try to start it, it's totally dead and has to be jumped.

I am not going to claim to be a hybrid expert but a new Fusion battery pack is over $4,000. Your car should be under warranty so I would take it back to the dealer. That said forums are full of complaints about owners having to jump start Fusions.
