1.Either you do not have the belt lined up correctly with the grooves on the pulleys,

2.Or the belt has not been installed in the correct pattern,

3.Or your belt tensioner pulley has a weak or broken spring, and is not pushing against the belt.
I found this problem on a car recently.
The tensioner pulley that you are supposed to pull back on, has to push against the belt. It also has to push with enough force.

Replaced the serpentine belt on a mazda protege then the engine runs hot dropping voltage and now wont start at all is this all from the belt?

Could be. The serpentine belt powers the alternator and the water pump. Maybe the belt is on wrong and running them backward. You would not be the first one to put a belt on wrong.

Wrong serpentine belt size

any chance you'r not puting it in correctly? where did you get number for belt ,did you make sure numbers on old belt cross over to new one ,and did the parts place know of all options on your car ,(example some cars dont all have the same options under hood ) is it way to big or way to small , if you tell the parts people you need a belt 1 size bigger or 1 smaller ,they will find the problem and get you the correct one.

If the belt slips of the tensioner is weak. If the tensioner can be moved by hand, scrap it and buy a new tensioner for the belt

It is possible that your tensioner pulley is seized and will have to be replaced as well. This happened to my 2001 F-150, the tensioner pulley seized and shredded the serpentine belt.
