After I installed my 300zx brakes my S13 doesn't start intermittently. Its some sort of electrical problem because the engine doesnt even attempt to crank. When i open the door and the chime starts chiming, the dome light flashes with it. The clock goes out when I step on the brake, and nothing happens when I turn the key. If I jump it, it starts but that doesnt guarantee its gona start the next time I try. Im wondering if this could have anything to do with the master cylinder wiring. The only other thing i can think of is that I've noticed a leak into my hatch recently where my amp is and maybe this is screwing up the electrical system? I hate electrical issues. Easily fixed but a bitch to diagnose.

Make sure you have good grounds, Sounds like an igntion short of some kind. I know it sounds bad but if you can't find the problem then you will need to pull the dash and look for wires touching or melted together. Have you ever blown an Ignition fuse?
