If the battery was sitting that long, it cannot store much energy.

There is a very chance that it has jumped timing, I can’t remember does that engine have a timing belt or gears? If you can tell me that I can tell you how to check it

Hi. Look like your charging system is down. Check battery first, alternator fuses relay responsible for charging. Your battery doesn't have or hold voltage and air bags are first in the system as good indication of power lose unless is actual air bag fault

Your lower brake lites are wired through the turn signal switch. You can see fuse in diagram, underhood fuse box. Your turn and brake use the same bulb filament at the lower rear, just not at the same time. I test for voltage and ground, use a testlight.

Hello Anonymous,

Before replacing the fan motor try hot wiring it to see if the motor will run. Disconnect the two wire connector at the fan motor and run two jumper wires from the battery. If you get the polarity backwards the fan will still run, just backwards... but it will answer the question of whether or not the motor is bad. If the motor runs on the hot wire setup, it's good and the problem lies somewhere else like the radiator fan relay.

This relay is located near the driver's side front wheel well. Go under the car and find the wires leading to the radiator fan on the drivers side. Trace them back and you will see they go to a waffer shaped solid state relay bolted to the car near the wheel well. It measures about 1 1/2 inches across and is about 1/4 inch thick.

Severe corrosion or heat damage to the aluminum mounting bracket may be the culprit. .

1. Start your vehicle
2. while running, disconnect the red battery cable from the battery.
3. If it dies, it is your alternator
4. If it continues to run then it will be your battery.

A bad cell could have too much internal resistance when the battery has to draw many amps to turn starter over. Put headlights on then hit the starter, if the headlights go off, the battery is bad or a connection at the battery cable or ground cable is dirty.
If you have a voltmeter, attach to battery and notice voltage of ~12v or greater, then hit starter, if battery is bad, the voltage will go from ~12v to under 9v and result is starter won't turn over the engine.

To find the EGR valve: locate your exhaust manifold (the first part on the front of the engine). There is a metal tube coming out of the driver's side and goes to the rear of the engine. This metal tube feeds exhaust gases to the EGR valve

sounds like a starter problem.. it may have a flat spot and will only not start when the flat spot lines up causing the no start problem. change the starter it will probably fix the problem.

The cam sensor controls the injector firing. This can be checked with a noid light or test light. Pull an injector plug and hook up either. Crank it over and if the light comes and of off, it's not the cam or PCM. Check the fuel pump fuse and relay. Then go after the fuel pump.

How deep is the water? Are the tires on one side of your car worn more than the other side?
What you may be experiencing is "hydroplaning", where one tire is "planing" on top of the water. That's a scary experience, and small, light cars are more prone to this than big heavy ones.

Make sure your fluid is up where it should be in your rad. Make sure your hoses are not kinked and is your rad clean on the inside. You may have to flush it out.
I would change your thermostat as it could be seized shut as well. I would put a new thermostat before tearing a lot of things apart
