"Broke down" doesn't say anything. What happened? Did you notice lights getting dim, engine misfiring, etc? Have you tried charging the battery or giving it a jump-start? If that will get the engine started, measure the battery voltage while the engine is running. It must be between 13.75 and 14.75 volts. If it is low, suspect the generator.
