Have your alternator tested most car part stores do it for free, but if you just put a new battery in it I would say it's your alternator because if it ran when you put the new one in then stopped after you used it that means the alternator was charging the battery and you were running of of direct current (power directly from the battery) instead of the alternator current (power produced from the alternator which powers the engine and electronics while running and keeps the battery charged). Instead your essentially running your engine and electronics of the battery directly and it's not being charged which drains the battery.

busman fusible link deterioted and did me in.(auto zone $3.59) No power. Located in front of battery.
