Q: Suburban won't start after sitting

asked by on

My Suburban has sat and hasn't been driven in a few years. The tires are low and it won't start. I feel like the battery just needs to be charged and air put in the tires. It might also need a new starter, though I am not sure.

A: I would start by having the battery charged...

I would start by having the battery charged and tested. More than likely, however, the battery will require replacement since the vehicle has been sitting for years. There is no reason to assume the starter went bad just from sitting. I suggest having your vehicle's no-start issue inspected by a trained professional to get you back on the open road

Q: Car won't start

Hello. I usually start by checking the battery. If it is low enough these other systems will work but there will not be enough power to engage the starter. If the battery is fine then most of the time this...
