Apologies if it's been raised before, but measure the battery voltage across the battery terminals. Do not trust dashboard battery condition meters/voltmeters.

Under no circumstances ever touch the gas pedal on a 3200 while starting, almost guaranteed to throw an ECU error. starting procedure is crank engine don't touch the pedal, the eCU does all the tweaking to get it to fire up automatically.

When start the maserati push gas pedal!!

I touch the pedal sometime when the starting and no problems

Well perhaps your car is broken? Apart from there being no point in touching the gas pedal when starting because the ECU ignores pedal demand when starting, it does do an idle output check on the pedal sensor on start up so if its pressed it will cause problems, best avoided.

Do you have codes? You could have a camshaft or crankshaft position sensor failed. If that’s the case then the coils won’t fire a spark

My car works perfectly and from time to time I plug in the diagnostic machine. I have done this part once, from now on I will consider this information
