Default Dead battery after cutting wires

So Ive removed my headliner from my 94 ram yesterday. I cut the passenger side rear speaker wire, and I cut the wires that go connect to the rear view mirror and the console thing that sits in the center of the head liner. Now I wake up today and I have a dead battery, at about 6-8 volts. Not even juice to crank the engine. I wait a few hours, and it magically starts, I let it run for about 30 minutes. When its running it stays at a steady 14 volts. And turn it off then try to turn it back on, but nothing. When I cut them wires did something go wrong? Thank you.

Electrical troubles are the hardest to troubleshoot. First, check your battery and make sure it has a full charge and is holding the charge. It's possible that when you cut the wire going to the console thing that you grounded out something, but not likely. Start with making sure you have a charged battery and go from there.
