If you truck sits for a long period of time like more than 7 months and it ran before you parked it then months later you try to start it and it wont go you should drain your tank of gas after a certain period of time all the gas evaporates and what is left is water with a gas smell it wont ignite so if you have fuel spark and air it should start it is worth a try before you go on replacing parts like plugs wires ect. it happened to me

Turn the key to the start possition and listen for a small humming noise coming from the gas tank if there is one the fuel sending unit is ok if no sound even if you have gotten real close to gas tank and heard nothing then its the fuel sending unit ok

Have you checked the voltage at the batry when running? Sounds like alternator is not working properly. The battry is only used for starting, once started the alternator runs all the accesories & charges the battry. If not chargeing the vehicle will **** battry power. You may have a good battry surface voltage but a bad battry. The battry should be load tested as well.

2000 gmc sierra been sitting two years, when i tried to start it seems like no fuel pressure. now it keeps blowing ecm2 fuse...and i dont hear fuel pump any more and gas gauge mreads way out of range.......

it sounds like you need a fule pump for your truck because you should never leave a truck sitting that long or after you leave gas sit for along time this gunk builds up and it wont let gas go through the hoses.
