Default Driver side light replacement?

I replaced the driver side light today. I did not detach the battery before i did it and maybe now i should have. My car won't start now and my car was running fine before i replaced the light. I had to replace the light because my car light got hit and broke. I attached the whole light with the new bulbs already in it when i purchased it. The wiring is on and correct. The lights work. The left turn signal works and breaks lights work.
I just went to start my car and it won't start. It clicks like it wants to start but it won't turn on. The battery may be weak and needs a jump
Any help or thoughts are appreciated
I have no one to give me a jump though =/


Thank you

Get the battery load tested and go from there. I don't know where you are, but any of the major chain auto parts stores will test it for you free of charge.

Leaving the battery connected while replacing your light assembly should not be a problem. It sounds like your battery is low for some reason. You might consider buying one of these portable power supplies and keep under the seat in your Cruiser. You won't have to rely on someone for a jump and you can charge your cell phone. It's small enough to in a pocket or purse.

I keep one like it in mine and one in our Oddysey.

I have a couple of those, I don't carry it unless I am going a long distance because of the size and weight.
