I just picked up an 85 Fiero GT that was in a barn for 20 years. When I turn the key on, I get all the accessories, lights etc., but no fuel pump, no sounds in the engine bay and it will not start. Any ideas would be appreciated. All fuses are good.

back away from the ignition key.

A Fiero that has been sitting for 20 years needs a lot of work before you start it up. There are some detailed threads here on cars that have been resurrected. Read through a few...Was the tank empty? You will probably need to look inside.

What he said ^^^^^^^

I lost my first fiero after 1 hour of having it because i drove it after it had been sitting for 10 years. Made it about 10 miles before it went up in flames.

What they said. You definitely need to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel pump and possibly need to clean the gas tank. Also plan on replacing the water pump and probably the alternator too. Of course change all the fluids and I would also put a tablespoon of marvel mystery oil in each spark plug hole and let it sit for a few days to lubricate the piston rings. If you get it running I would use some injector cleaner also. My 85 duke had sat for maybe 9 or 10 years and I had to do all hat and more. My water pump was frozen solid. Also don't forget to check the hvac blower housing for animal nests and debris. Your thermostat should also be replaced.
