Sounds like the battery is dead, especially if it was sitting around for 3 months without a trickle charger hooked up

have you tried checking for electric current on your battery..
batteries really died down for sitting too long..
and after that maybe your engine is cold...

i got the battery for christmas and it hasnt been hooked up just sitting under the hood with the car no cables attatched. i attached the cables just to wire in a new deck and try it out, and i dis-attached them when i was done. everything workeds in the dash except i cant get it to even crank when i try to start it

I would try the starter.. Try jumping it to see if the starter is good or not.. My 93 Si starter died with absolutely NO WARNING! Would start and run fine one day out the blue wouldn't crank like i had a dead battery. Re-placed the starter and wham works fine ever since.
