Montana don't start

Asked by May 25, 2015 at 11:51 PM about the Pontiac Montana

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Montana was sitting for 3 months, before she worked fine. When I turn ignition to
starter position, relay clicks, but starter don't turn. I tried to tap the starter with no
results.Then I  manually jump the wires on the starter itself, starter start turning
immediately and started the engine right away. Engine runs for a second and dies. I
tried it multiple times with same result. Gas tank is full, battery is good. looks like I
have 2 problems. Somebody can help?

Is the battery really good? What is the voltage? Did you have it bench tested?
