If the car has sat for 3 years then there is a LOT that you need to do before starting it.

!. The gas needs to be drained and fresh gas needs to be put in.
2. plugs need to be changed
3. Battery will probably need recharging or replacing
4. the oil needs to be drained and changed.

More than likely the issue is your battery but startig that car with out at least changing the oil and getting the old gas out will be VERY harmful to your engine.

When i stopped all dash board lights came on and now wont start and has no power to anything

When vehicle stalls, the dash lites may come on.
Make sure battery has a full charge, battery connections all good. Make sure charging system is working properly.
Use a test lite and check voltage to fuse circuits in fuse box. Some fuses circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. Right now, I can't tell if you have problem with battery--battery connections--charging system--fusible links--ignition switch or what? You need to do some testing. Let us know what you find?

Put new battery in car dash lights up but 1 click only from battery, won't turn over

dashboard doesn't require a lot of juice. check the front lights and make sure they're nice and bright. if they are, then the problem is probably the starter. if they're not bright, then you probably need to clean the terminals and make sure they're tight.

Car won't turn over have good battery and new starter dash lights come on but won't crank

If the cat is not turning over with a new battery and new starter, make sure the starter is getting correct power. Impalas are tricky since it is front wheel drive. Be sure the cables connecting the starter are fully tightened or plugged in, and be sure it is grounded properly. If your interior gets power there is some issue going to the starter or coming from it to the engine. When you turn the key to start, does it have any sound coming from it?

1998 Accord will not start

starting withthe battery,check and clean ALL connections as something is not making proper contact.make sure the cables are good, clamps your way to the starter solenoid and check contacts/ connections there..also chech ground wires..all this is only if the battery does not have a shorted cell in it.. even new ones can get shorts..if you can get it to start go to autozone or advance..they do free testing..

My 2008 Camry will not start. I checked the battery, and it is reading at 11.9. When the key is turned to accessory the dash lights come on and radio works, but if I apply the brake or turn to start...

No fit a new battery ,also check its charging do this by jump starting the vehicle with proper cables and not boost cables then with engine running disconnect the neg battery terminal ,if engine stops then you need a new alternator if it continues to run replace the battery ,it should 12.7 volts or up dont start playing with relays or anything else .

Power problem

i would start by checking all the fuses first then make sure the battery connections are on correctly and are also clean and tight, you may have a bad starter but you should be getting power to headlights and dash lights, if theres no power anywhere but the rear door then theres a bad fuse somewhere, but if the headlights work and brake lights and dash lights and the heater blower motor all work then you may have a bad starter, make sure to have the key on when checking these things.

Tail lights and instrument panel lights dont work

The Dash and Tail lights connect to the same fuse in most cars. if the fuse is okay, check to make sure the tail lights and/or dash lights are properly grounded. all bulbs could be blown...but highly unlikely.
