Can anyone help me?

Thanks to this forum, I was able to replace the electronic window winder in my driver's side window. I checked everything along the way to make sure it worked, EXCEPT I did not start my car!

I have a 1993 Ford Fairmont.

The battery guage is sitting about 11 and when I turn the ignition all I get is tick, tick, tick. I had the starter motor replaced about 6 months ago. Can I have connected something wrong like the mirrors or the speaker? Or do I need to jump start the car?

This may sound dumb, but I am when it comes to cars, this is the first thing I have tried, but I am now ready for more fixing - if I can get the rotten thing started!

Would appreciate any help>.
Thanks,

Judy

^ what WILDEB said, because youve had th door open for a while fixing the regulator, the interior lights have probably flattened the battery.

Thanks, I thought that was probably IT but just needed confirmation.
