Car will not start

Because the engine turns over means your started had enough voltage to turn ON. You can easily test the voltage on the battery with a volt meter. It should be about 12.0 Volts when the engine is not running. Batteries should normally be charged every few days for about 1/2 hour each time. You can go a short time for a couple of weeks without charging as long as you don't get in to a habit of doing that. If you went for months without running your car; I assumed you had to replace the battery already or your battery would not have been able to turn over the engine or hold a charge.

The automatic door locking is the least of your problems. It might be your car did not have a battery of proper voltage for an extended period of time.

Gasoline does not age well if you did not place any additive for prolonged storage. Even the additive for prolong storage says about a 6 month period. Maybe you should take out some gasoline from your tank to see if it still looks good. I normally don't fill my tank but every 1 to 2 months (without a problem) with no additive added, but 1 year is a long time. My guess is 1 year old gasoline may have changed over time and thickened and it could have contaminated your fuel system.

Depending on how old and how much fuel is in the tank can affect your next step. If the fuel is the problem; you will have to drain the tank and possibly have someone use one of the pressurized fuel cleaning treatments. You might need a new fuel filter, and I know there is a pressure regulator to return the fuel to the tank as well as fuel injectors and the fuel rail. I have never had gasoline that old, so you might need a professional mechanic if you are dealing with old fuel in the system.

The only gasoline I trust to age over time is Coleman fuel in a sealed container (also known as white gas). This can be found where they sell outdoor camping equipment. I don't know if that will help, but I had to run 1 gallon of this in 1992 Oldsmobile 88 because there was no gasoline. Coleman fuel is ultra refined gasoline without the extra additives they normally put in gasoline.

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan. I got a "tune up" approx. 2 weeks ago with new spark plugs, fuel filter & air filter. It did fine driving around town & on a 130 mile trip. I filled up with...

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

The car sat with a dead battery for a long time. Upon replacing battery the car will start fine and run for about three seconds and then cut out. Must be some kind of anti theft. How do I get car...

Put in some dry gas. If it sat for a long time , condensation, water, could be the problem. Add some new gas too. If you can siphon out the old gas first, that would be good. Change the fuel filter. If it still starts and stops, check the fuel pump/pressure. Test it at the fuel is fuel injected, right?

1999 blazer wont start??

Your battery is either faulty or ther is a parasitic drain, have it checked out at parts house. With a good battery installed, spray some starter fluid into intake housing. If it starts, then dies, you have fuel pressure/delivery problems. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the key? Hope this helps.
