asa you said change the battery,check oil and water or for anything obvious,then try turning it over by hand first,if it turns over fine then give it a try on the key,or give it a tow,i know vans that have lain for a year and fired up 1st kick,then once its up and running then change fuel filter and oil etc,check your brakes etc T:

I bought a 1.9td late last year, been stood outside for 2 1/2 years without running.

Fitted a new battery and it started first turn of the key.

Obviously needs a service, but was really surprised that it started first time. Only problem found was the handbrake was locked on solid, but even that eventually let go.
