    the problem might actually be caused by a seized idler pulley - or tensioner pulley -

    Yea time to check everything and make sure they spin freely. A froze up pulley and a good belt/tensioner can keep an engine from turning over.
    A belt slipping off would be a clue as to something isn't correct.

    That sounds like a dead battery. You should have been able to run a lot longer than 1/4 - 1/2 mile on battery power alone if the alternator seized. Might want to check that as well.
