This might be a shot in the dark but what I have found is often if a car is let sit for a time varmits<mice ,squirls ,ext> will make a meal of some wiring. disconnect battery and give car a good looking over for wires with chew marks, I have had to repair harnesses just under the throtle body several times on new cars off our dealership lot.

Hi
first I hope that you are well now
did you replaced the battery?
if yes, do this procedure and your car will be drivable.
switch ignition ON then OFF 10 times writhing10 seconds ( in total)
then switch ignition ON and leave it for 1 minute then you start the engine.
if you did not replace the battery yet, better you change it first

Charged battery wont start just clicks


The clicking may be a starter motor problem, if it's been stood for a while it might need starting to get everything back to normal, eg the cars memory......

My car just came out of storage for 6 years. it ran good for a few weeks but now when i try to start it, it wont turn over just cranks.


Any car that stood for so long need to have all the belts change before use as the belts crack and loose flexibility, the cam belt will most probably go first and will damage the valves. Most probably jumped a tooth on the cam gear and timing will be out and will not start. Check all the timing marks if still in position. Petrol can also be the problem as the filters clog with the dirt in the tank after a long period not running.

Can you hear it clicking at gas door when you hit switch? Try having someone hit switch while you push in a little on it. Once open, lubricate little release part inside.

1994 GMC Sierra stood for 6 years


Well his first mistake was buying a Duramax Isuzu Diesel... But with that said, Diesel has a tendency to grow bacteria in the gas tank. Flush the gas tank and change the fluids in the engine and you should be fine. You may notice that some of the gaskets on the engine may leak now that they have dried up. they will either reseal themselfs in time or with thightening or you will have to replace the gasket. I don't think that will be the case after only a few years though.
