If you are saying the engine will not crank but if it does the brake cable gets hot, it sounds like the engine is not grounded to the frame.

    The cable connections could be corroded. Usually when something like a brake cable gets hot while you are cranking the engine, the cable is carrying electricity instead of the cable that should be. The engine may have several ground connections. You can always add an extra cable between the battery and engine to be sure.

Emergency brake might be stuck on my 95 nissan pick up truck 2 wheel drive. My turn signals wont work and neither do my hazards. Brake lights wont turn off unless I pull the fuse out

Check for a faulty switch at the brake pedal, sounds like the contacts are welded shut or hot wire grounding out someplace in the circuit.

Why wont a car start I changed the starter solnoid batterie cabels

Is starter solenoid clicking when the key is turned? Is the battery fully charged? If answer is yes to both of the above then either the starter is bad or the new starter solenoid isn't good. It is possible that new parts are not right. You could take both big cables off of the solenoid and touch them together and see if the starter tries to crank. But be careful doing this as it will get hot where it is touched together and also will flash, spark. I hope this helps and please rate my answer so I get points for it.
