Re: i need help

I'm assuming you charged the battery. If the belt came off means the alternator wasn't .. well alternating and you were running on your battery until it died. typically when the battery is low you get the crazy dash syndrome.

Re: i need help

(1) A brief description of the problem in the subject line of the thread will help attract responses from people browsing the forum who might have some expertise or similar experience. A subject line like "i [sic] need help" doesn't give anyone any idea what the thread is about.
(2) Using punctuation will help communicate your thoughts more clearly.

Take the battery to your local Autozone/Pep Boys/Advance Auto/whatever and they can test it (to be sure it will hold a charge); if it's OK then they can charge it for you.
