    starter wont work; when i turn the key the parking brake light on the dash comes on?

    Been doing the wiring in the jeep to get it running and make it steet legal. So to day i wen't to start it and the parking brake light came on and the starter didn't work why is that ? Have i missed a wirer or is somthing in the wrong spot? Im dumb a$$ hell when it comes to wiring.

    Parking brake light coming on with the key in ignition means the brake lever is not quite released, as for the starter need a bit more info. When you try starting does it click or is there nothing at all? Does it make any sounds at all when you try starting the Jeep

    Clicks would be battery, try to charge it up see if you can get one last go of her....make sure the terminals are night on the battery as well.
