    the windows are manual windows.
    So what is the next step?

    I have changed the battery because I thought that it was not getting enough juice to crank. I have tried to hold key both ways in door to possibly reset alarm. Although the alarm does not go off now when I open but still will not crank. I can reset radio off safe mode and works and hear a hum in back of car like the fuel pump. When I try to start it does not do anything, not even attempt to start. How would you like me to try with starter, with a screwdriver?

1996 volkswagon jetta will start but dies immediatly ran fine before sat for a few months


It's mad at you for not knowing how to spell Volkswagen.
Also, if you let the car sit for several months, there is a high likelihood that the gasoline has gone bad. Start by draining all old fuel from the vehicle, and replace with new fuel.
If the problem persists, troubleshoot for a fuel delivery problem (such as a clogged fuel filter or stuck fuel pressure regulator).

There is a 1996 GMC Safary sitting in a driveway for 3 years, It was running before,what is the safest way to make it run again?


Depends if you kept fluids in it. If so Just try to turn it over with a new battery. You old one probably is no good. After a few turns if you have new gas in tank, it should start. I bought a Ford Ranger that sat up for 3 years and it cranked right up.

if you keept trying to start it with no luck it could be possible you have flooded the cylinder. get a can of starter fluid and spray it in your intake(air filter box) and try to turn it over. if it trys to start you should drain all fule. add new fule with a can of octain boost. if car does not start pull spark plugs and try to drain cylinder

1996 5 speed honda accord. sat for a year. put in new battery. everything lights up, but car wont start. never had previous problem.


Are you saying the car turns over (cranks) but it does not start? Or, the car is Not turning over?
If it is cranking over but not starting, and it ran fine before sitting for the year, it may be water/moisture in the gas. Try some dry gas, and/or Carb-fuel injection cleaner in your gas tank.
