2003 galant serpentine belt replacement

My daughter just bought a 03 galant, had it for 10 days and calls me to tell me it just died and won't do anything when she turns the key. I had her lift the hood and sure enough no alternator belt, how hard is it to replace? Do I need a jack for the engine? Any help is appreciated

Pick up a belt at you local auto parts store you wont need a jack just a couple of metric wrenches and a rachet. under the hood will be the routing for the belt . follow it exactly. make sure all the pulleys spin . they all will except the crank. if any other one doesnt spin you found the reason the belt broke. let me know if you cant find the diagram ill send it to ya.
hope this helps

Key in ignition stucked

battery died somehow in two days - More then likely your vehicle has what is call a parasitic drain on the electrical system (battery) . Something is not turning off when it is suppose to . The key will not come out because of lack of battery power . Safety system-won't let the key be turned all the way off an removed again because of no power . You have to get it jump started an get it off the street . Then check out vides on youtube on find parasitic draw .

Position sensors

It's possible that the sensor needs to be rotated. The sensor is keyed so it can only be installed in one position. The camshafts spin once for every two revolutions of the crank, so it's possible that the sensor is 360 degrees out of phase (I've had this happen on timing belt jobs on other cars - with the sensor out of phase, the car would start, and then trail off and die within a few seconds). What you can try is to carefully remove the sensor, turn it over to see the part that mates to the cam, rotate it one full revolution, and then put it back on. Try that out and see if it helps. If it does the trick, great. If not, post back up and we can try to go from there.
