You probably have a broken fan belt (serpentine style). If the fan belt checks OK, then your alternator may be shot. Pull the Alt. and take it to your friendly auto parts guy, he'll put it on a machine and test it. (before you buy) Bring the battery as well, they can load test it or charge it as well. Is this a great country?

I would go to advance auto parts and have the battery tested, Also the alternator, The engine wont run if the alternator is bad, As soon as the battery goes dead the car will shut down, Any auto parts store usually will check the battery and alternator for free, make sure the battery is fully charged before you take it there. They will let you know what you need to replace...
