2015 Maserati will not start

My 2015 Maserati will not start. The battery icon isn't appearing. So not sure if the battery is low. The trunk wouldn't open as I wanted to take a look at the manual. I tried both my remote and the button on the left side below the steering wheel. I was able to open it couple of hours ago. But not anymore. It is just the trunk. Is my battery dead? By the way I also see letter "P" within a circle appearing on my panel. Nothing else. Any idea? One other point. I have been driving beyond the due date for maintenance since I had not driven more than 5 thousand miles since the last service. The maintenance due light came up because of the anniversary. Was planning to reset the light. So didn't think much of it. Now, worried that it could potentially have led to this issue. Any input is appreciated.

Potentially a dead battery, there is a piece of string to pull on to open the boot if i'm not mistaken.


Then multimeter and you should have 12.4-12.6V, if you have less than 10-11 the battery is shot or discharged.

Thank you, Fredvr. I will try tomorrow in the AM. I also saw an YouTube video where they were jump starting the battery under the hood. Would that be a feasible approach?

Maserati recommends jumping from the posts under the hood. It’s a smart alternator that regulates voltage to the battery so it’s not supposed to spike any systems that way.

Garage
go for the way under the hood. Remove the red cap and connect + here. This is easy and straightforward.

The battery in the trunk is not a good way to jump. First of all, it is a tedious procedure to open the trunk - crazy design and second, you may hit wrong connectors.

Good luck!
