Most likely the battery and possibly the alternator are bad.

check the wire from the battery to the starter to see if it has good connection. otherwise check your ground to block.

1994 suburban will not keep charge from battery,


Sounds like a bad altnator. if the alt. is working propperly it will run the burb. with out the battery installed. With that though, it possiably could of damaged the batt. enough to the point of replacement as well.

Was driving home engine made a popping sound engine died now will not turn over


could be alot of things. My car's alternator went bad and as the battery died, it started to backfire. Try testing the battery or jumping it off. If it will start then, your alternator is most likely bad. Try this and let me know if it helps :)

Your alternator charges your battery. No alternator, no battery charge.

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank


sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.
