Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.
Fuel injectors may be dirty.. or plugged.
The car just sitting there may have caused the gas to go bad which may have
given them a head start on plugging from the get go. Get some cleaner for it.
When the dash lights blink, is it unlike anything you've seen it do before?
check the detail :
This could be leaking fuel injectors, a stuck Fuel Pump relay, and/or faulty fuel pressure regulator. Have you had any of these items checked and/or replaced? If not, it may be time to replace them. Also, check your fuel filter. If it hasn't been replaced in the last year, replace it.
there may be a fuel problem. The fuel pump may not be working properly. Also, if the vehicle has been run out of fuel, there may be air in the lines and turning the ignition off and on will turn on and off the fuel pump which could push the air bubble through the system long enough to let the vehicle run and when it is turned off the air bubble will work its way back up to cause problems again. There may be a problem with the wire from the ignition to the fuel pump as well. When it wont start, you can pop the fuel line off the fuel pump while the ignition is on, or have someone turn the engine over while the line is off and it should push fuel out. If it pushes fuel out, you may have an air bubble in the line somewhere. You can get rid of the bubble by turning the engine over and crack each injector line off one at a time while the engine is being turned over.
Hope this helps!
