JQuery Not Working

I have a website that uses Expression Engine as the CMS.
I have a few fields that need validating before a form does its thing.

I used the Validate.js

The code is not working.  It was but is not now and I'm not sure why.
<script>
 $(function() {
		$.validator.addMethod(
			"regex",
			function(value, element, regexp) {
				var re = new RegExp(regexp);
				return this.optional(element) || re.test(value);
			},
			"Incorrect format; Please check your input.");
	});

$.noConflict();
$( document ).ready(function(){
		$("#get_quote").validate({
errorElement: 'div',
			rules: {
				bike_value: {
					required: true,
					digits: true
				},
				bike_state: {
					required: true,
					maxlength: 2
				},
				email_value: {
					required: true,
					email: true,
					regex: "^((\"[\\w\\s-]+\")|([\\w-]+(?:\\.[\\w-]+)*)|(\"[\\w\\s-]+\")([\\w-]+(?:\\.[\\w-]+)*))(@((?:[\\w-]+\\.)*\\w[\\w-]{0,66})\\.([a-zA-Z]{2,6}(?:\\.[a-zA-Z]{2})?)$)|(@\\[?((25[0-5]\\.|2[0-4][0-9]\\.|1[0-9]{2}\\.|[0-9]{1,2}\\.))((25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|1[0-9]{2}|[0-9]{1,2})\\.){2}(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|1[0-9]{2}|[0-9]{1,2})\\]?$)"

				}
			},

			messages: {

				bike_value: {
					required: "Please enter the bike value"
				},
				bike_state: {
					required: "Please choose your state"
				},
				email_value: {
					 required: "Please enter an email address",
					 email: "Please enter a valid email address",
					 regex: "Please enter this particular format of email address"
				}		

			},
			submitHandler: function(form) {
			form.submit();
			}


		});
	});

</script>

hi rgranlund,

 When you say "not working", what do  you mean?

Can you post the markup?

I have learned that the jQuery Validate plugin is looking for the name attribute of the input field.  My name field has brackets.  This is causing the jQuery not to work.  I'm not sure how to fix this problem:
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){


		$("#update_cart_form").validate({
		
errorElement: 'div',
			rules: {
				item_options[accessories_value]: {
					required: true,
					digits: true
				}
			},

			messages: {

				purchase_price: {
					required: "Please enter the bike value",
					digits: "Please enter only numeric values"
				}

			}
		});
			
	});

</script>

the Script is included in the footer.  The field I am trying to validate is the Value of Attached accessories.

Your javascript is looking for a button I supposed called get_quote and I don't see it anywhere.

It will really help to show relevant code.

It's the script at the bottom, in the footer, not the script at he top.
