Check engine light come on ? You should have some testing done ! Fuel pressure an flow testing , Scan tool data checked . Charging system , battery , connections , cables . What data does scan tool show for mass air flow sensor , what are the fuel trims at ? If you don't know what these are you need to take it to a qualified repair shop .

1997 chevy blazer s10 cranks but wont start


You have a new battery and it cranks. Turning over is cranking. You are saying it won't start after sitting for six months? What is an old mechanic? Was the cable installed at home during the one year layoff? It sounds as though you failed to hold the old mechanic responsible for installing the correct cable or adjusting the one you have ,so it will start. You have a safety switch issue by the sound of it. Make sure you have the right cable and then find out how to install and if applicable,adjust properly

Sounds like the ground wire for the battery is not making clean contact. Trace that wire and clean both ends and the area it connects to the engine block. Good luck!
