Thumbs down Replaced Headlight, Now Car Won't Start

NO PROBLEMS Whatsoever prior to this fiasco. I drove my car into the garage like any other day. After attempting to replace the freaking low beam headlight, my car won't start. I never knew changing a headlight could be so difficult. Once we pried it off, we screwed in the H11 light and next thing you know the car will not start and none of the lights will turn on. All the wires are intact, nothing else was removed or snapped. Once putting in the new light and turning on the light to check if it works, it made a clicking noise and the door locks kept going up and down and the lights inside the car were dimming. This is car is making my stomach hurt. I got this car with 12,000 miles now it has 25,000. Practically new. Now it will not start, what the heck all because we replaced the headlight. Really!

did you listen to the radio while performing the task? is your battery old? (im guessing its a battery)

25k miles.. at least a 4 years on the battery.. its not the miles but the age..
