Multiple clicks, no start. Help!

I was installing a daystar switch panel and shifted the shifter to 1 (moved towards me for more space to install lower dash panel). Also moved the 4wd shifter back too. 08 jk started fine before this...now, when I try to start, it seems to have enough power, but I just get a click...click...click... Checked battery and iod fuse, disconnected the battery and hooked back up, still no start. The keyless entry still works. Thoughts?

If you have the elec package, that's a huge can of worms....but have you tried with your spare key? Did you disconnect your battery before you modded the wiring? Triple-checked that the wiring was all as it was? UNDID it all back to OEM?
just some ideas...

Sounds like a dead battery, did you try charging it?

Yep. Battery was completely dead. Needed a good charge. Going to look into an optima yellow top...

I'd read up on the Optima. People have been saying that they are not as good as they used to be. General consensus is the Die Hard is the way to go.

Ask me why you should not buy anything from 4 Wheel Online

I have had good luck with my energizer for what it's worth.

I'll look into those options as well. Also, the optimas are a bit pricey.
