Question about 1983 Chevrolet Blazer
Here's what happened. While you were driving, the alternator stopped functioning. When it did, it quit charging the battery. The power required by the engine, lights, wipers, etc. was now coming only from the battery. As it drained, the lights dimmed. When it died, so did your engine.
If your battery is flat (nothing left), it still might come back to life. You'll need to put a charger on it. 2 Amps over night will tell you whether or not it is still usable.
As for the Alternator, check for loose wires and belts. Check cable on the battery as well. If they look ok, pull the alternator out and have it checked at an auto parts store. Many of them will do this for free. Replace it if necessary.
