From your brief description I presume you are able to crank the engine?
If all o.k. then I would be looking at fuel? if Petrol which I think possibly is maybe it has gone stale? You say 12 months if only a small amount of fuel in tank then you may get away with diluting the old with fresh, however it might not run too sweet until old fuel spent.
If Diesel possible Fuel filter change and check for Air locks.

Just bought engine for my cadillac escalade yr 1999 and alternator and my battery wont stay charged what can be the problem

Either the alternator is not being energized with the key on, or the main wire from the alternator to the battery/starter is bad.
Have you checked output on the back of the alternator with the engine running ?

2004 escalade wont start

I had the same issue lately with a different car. I took the car to Autozone and they did a quick test of my battery. It turned out that the battery was pretty well shot, but it would work if someone jumped the car off.

You may try getting the battery tested to make sure you don't need to replace it.

Hope that helps!

I have a 2003 escalade that has a dead battery after 2 days of sitting. Once I jump start it it will be fine as long as I start it everyday, but once it sits the battery will die again. What can I do???

First have the battery tested with a load tester and also (most places will do both for free hoping to sell a battery etc) the charging system tested.

Either battery, charging system are bad or you have a drain of the battery somewhere.

A authorized dealer would be a smart move.

Check and see if engine is overheating, if so it can be many causes.... Radiator, head gasket, leaks in coolant system...etc... maybe some kind of sensor also, or battery
