Yes it will ruin the car because eventually it will make it jump time. park the car and try your nearest autozone, napa or any parts store also check out the tensioner to make sure that is ok

My main belt broke while driving home, had car towed home we replaced the belts and car will not turn over its as if low battery but used another working battery so what else could it be


/mm.
What type of vehicle? Which type of belts?('V-belts or the wider (~1inch) multi-grooved Serpentine belt)
Your broken belt may have hit something when it broke. Does it click-click-click, or no responce to 'start' possition at key?
Might have knocked large battery cable, or small starter wire loose (or cut it 'open'), or some ground-wire, or ignition wire, or module/harness connector loose.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

Ac belt broken. Is car safe to drive? How hard is this belt to replace?


as long as the water pump, alternator, are working properly. but if it has just one serpintine belt that drives all things it must be replaced. before running. if only the ac belt, it is ok to drive if it has its own belt that is broken.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.


You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....
