The charging system might need to be inspected. It seems like the alternator is not working. You might need to charge the battery first.

Thats the thing. I just got a new alternator put in not long ago. And how do I charge the battery?

I bought a battery charger to perform that task, its a 10 amp charger from Sears for about $30 or so. I would also get on the phone with whomever installed the alternator to see what liability they are willing to accept.
