If you havent replaced the battery I would start there. If the battery has a dead cell in it then it will effectively remove the charge that your alternator is putting out causing your vehicle to stop running because it has no power. I would jump start the car without the battery hook up and remove the cables and see if it runs that way. If it does you have a bad battery.

Testimonial: "Thanks. But the question is, when engine is on, if I remove the cable from battery the engine supposed to be on, but in my case engine died."
Most likely your alternator is bad. Best thing to do is take it off and take it to your local parts store and have them test it.
