Battery weak, loose battery connections (either end), bad terminal wires or terminals, bad alternator or starter, or again connections, frayed, loose, corroded, bad grounds from engine to frame, starter solenoid ect, check all those and have battery/alternator/starter tested at parts store. See if your e-brake is applied or if you need brake fluid or brake shoes/pads or electrical connections are loose, see if you have any brake fluid leaks or brake switch at brake pedal is bad, are you brake lights working ect.
