If the vehicle is starting fine and the alternator is keeping the battert charged, start by checking for bad fuses both in the vehicle and under the hood. Also, check body grounds.

The alternator is broken the car ran on the battery when I tried to turn on the car it did not start the car ate the battery I installed so it didn't turn on. If I repair the alternator do you think everything that is wrong with the car will work normal once again?

If the alt isn't in the car, the battery can't get charged and will die. So, yes. It needs replaced.
