Low Voltage is a good point, it's surprising how even a slightly low battery that will still start the car will cause all manner of strange problems that don't seem to make sense. Fwiw I had the battery low once and it cranked over rather slowly, but did in fact start. However, the SRS airbag light turned on and transmission went into failsafe mode. Drove for an hour, turned it off and started it again and it acted like nothing happened.

If your car was stored for a while with the battery connected, it may be good to pull the battery for a day or two and have it fully charged, then reinstall and start.
