Why did the car "die" and how exactly does it "not start"?

Like funzie said the brakes should work once you start the car, they require engine vacuum to power the brake booster.

Also, you posted this in the wrong forum.

As for the car not starting check the basic stuff first.

What do you mean by "not starting"
does the motor turn but not catch, or not turn over at all? do your dome lights come on?
