Well before i changed the alternator i think it killed my battery. so should i have my battery charged?
if the battery is completely dead charging will do nothing. have the battery tested and go from there

Sounds like maybe its a fuel issue not electrical. Trying swapping relays.

check the key. if you have a key fob or transponder key, sometimes when the battery is dead you may need to reprogram the key to start the vehicle.
