Car dead?

So i was cruising around my battery died. So i took it to advance and got a new battery, now tonight i go to my friends house and i get ready to go home and i go to start my car and dead. Not normal dead super dead. I couldnt even jump it for a while, when i did i drove it 600 feet. Dead. So the things im thinking is it coukd be the belt cause it squeaks alot. Alol lately, or i have a radio that is not hooked up to the accessory switch and there is a small light always on but thats never affected anything for 7 mnths and btw when i shut the car off when i got their the battery was fine.

Re: Car dead?

Is you battery/voltage light on when it's running? Do you have a volt/ohm meter? You need to check and see if your altenator is charging when it is running. If not it could be a bad altenator or a loose or bad belt. If you unhook the negative battery cable after it is started and it dies it is not charging.
The best part of breaking something or messing up is learning how to fix it.
