Car wont start evern with new battery

Iv got a Vauxhall Astra 2002 model 1.4ls. I have recently just changed the battery as it kept on stopping on me, however even after doing this today the engine just suddenly turned off and the car came to a slow halt. It then would turn back, the engine self starts but wouldnt catch, however after leaving it for a while i managed to start it up again. I tested it 4/5 times then once again it stopped. I left it a while longer and once again its started up again but i dont want to risk driving in case it breaks down on me...does anyone know what could be wrong with it and how much it would cost to repair?

    Hey i took the car to a garage they did a diagnostic test and found that the fuel pump relay is not working. they said after they change it fingers crossed thats all it is because apparently fault with the relay can lead to other problems...so gotta wait until monday.

    Most likely it is your alternator and that would need to be replaced. I
    will give the website on how to remove and install the alternator, but I need to know the Model of your Mercedes-Benz.

    Oh OK. Well most likely it would be that! I will look up your car and if you send me an E-Mail at simard2@comcast.net I will be able to send you step by step instruction on how to remove and install an alternator for your car.

    Thank you.

    Check the connection wires from the battery to the starter. If that looks good than check the Starter Cylinoid and let me know. Also, because the radio, dash, etc. doesn't take as much amps, when you try to start the car, that needs a lot of amps. So let me know. As I can tell this is not a American car. This looks like a car from London. How did it get here?

    When I said "because the radio, dash, etc. doesn't take as much amps, when you try to start the car, that needs a lot of amps" I meant to add it maybe the alternator.
