The only lights that I see when I open the door are the dome light and the 'door open' light. On top of the dashboard near the windshield, in front of the steering wheel is what I think might be the security indicator, but it does not seem to be lighting (now, in the daylight at least)when I open the door or try to start the car.
The horn works, but does not sound as an alarm in response to opening the door.
The engine cranks easily, but no hint of it trying to start. I sprayed some starting fluid into the air intake, but even that did not cause any sign of life in the engine as I would expect, if only momentarily. I just checked the 7.5 amp fuse indicated as the ignition fuse and it looks OK.
(The car sat without being started for 3 years, was out of gas and the battery was toast. I replaced the positive cable clamp and the battery, put in 1 gallon of fresh gasoline and 1 can of dry gas prior to posting my original question, all to no avail except that I no longer have to use jumper cables to power the car.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
