Since you ran out of fuel, it's possible your car pulled sediment at the bottom of the tank into the system. I would recommend changing the fuel filter. The clicking noise is due to the battery being 'flat'. You need to charge it, and depending how quickly it went flat after trying to start (if it went flat after a few minutes of attempting to start) I would have the battery checked for it's condition, as it may be time to replace it. In the US you can get a free check of the battery condition at parts stores, with the battery in or out of the car, not sure about where you live though. Good luck, let me know what you find.

Diesel or petrol????? Diesel is under the bonnet at the back on the passenger side slightly under the window screen. The petrol fuel filter is under vehicle just in front of the fuel tank.

I have a vw sharan v6 dual fuel but will not run

The fuel system is switched from L.P. to petrol by use of a solenoid.
The soleniod is operated by a relay.
The relay is electrically protected by a fuse.
Check all 3 starting with the fuse and checking back.
Please let me know what you find.

98 jeepwrangler won't start

This is basic, but first off, try to shift it into neutral, and try to start it. It is easy for the linkage to get out of adjustment, where it thinks the jeep is in gear. If that does not work, make sure you have battery power to the ignition and starter.
