i understand that it is a 12 volt battery.but how many volts are on the battery,test with volt meter.if the gas has been in the car for 2 years,its no good,need to get it out.it could be one problem or several problems.you need to have a spark test done,and fuel pressure test also,after getting the old fuel out and put new fuel in.

Oh yeah duh i totally forgot about the fuel thank you. It runs now, I had to jump it but now it runs and drives. Now i just have to fix a couple doorhandles cause only one works, and the trunk wont open, but it runs and drives.
