Hey guys can someone please help I pulled out my manual pedal box to repair and straighten the clutch pin on the pedal box

I refitted the pedal box, plugged back in the black plug on steering column,
plugged in the white and orange plugs which were attached to the pedal box,
Plugged in the brake switch
Checked all fuses
I turn the key to on
All dash lights come on
Abs, airbag, seatbelt light turn off
Coolant, battery, temp, petrol light (petrol at 3/4 tank) stays on
Turn key to start and the brake system light comes on (!) and nothing else happens?
I can hear petrol prime

Does anyone have any ideas please?

Double check all your loom connectors. Theres a couple of ones that are held on a bracket, which attaches to the pedal box. Also check the ignition switch is plugged in properly. If the car worked fine before, and you haven't damaged any wires, it must be a connector somewhere.

G'day mate, thank you for your advice, I have triple checked all looms under there, I undone the screws holding the fuse box in and checked they were all plugged in properly, undone and blew out all 3 looms that I disconnected and clipped in again!? It's got me stumped?

Id bust out a test light and trace the start wire from the ignition barrel. Only other thing i can think of is the immobiliser not deactivating.

Update!

Mate you were right haha and I feel like an idiot!!!!
My mechanic mate came around with a scanner and couldn't find any fault codes, reset the keys and the computer etc and nothing changed then after a (good) look found that I hadn't plugged in a wire that went from the ignition to the gas computer :( so now the car cranks but won't start because it's forgotten the key :( and I only have one key for the car

This is going to be costly :(((

Just my luck
