Exclamation Jeep wont start

Last night I left my dome light on and this morning of course my battery was dead. When I tired to jump it the jeep was trying to start. It was running off but it just wouldn't start up. Anyone know whats wrong or anything I can try to fix this?

If 12 hours of dome light was enough to kill it, you need a new battery anyway.

What do you mean by 'running off'? Was it cranking, just wouldn't fire? We need a little more info before we can begin to track down the issue
If it doesn't move and it should, WD-40. If it does move and it shouldn't, duct tape. A lot of duct tape.

Well I went to the store and bought a new fuel pump relay and that fixed the problem after I jumped it with the new relay
