Scan for codes, check fuel pressure and have battery/starter checked. It could be something serious.

The brakes were hard topush because your engine quit running an dyou had no boost for them. You really need to get eht battery/starter checked. Most auto parts stores will check a battery for free but you should charge it first. Also get your charging system checked.

I will have it check I don't think is the battery because it is a new battery, it might be the starter I never replace that before.
