Need more information.
Does it crank? (starter spins engine when key is turned)
Any other electrical systems work? - lights, turn signals, gauges, radio, etc. . .
Check all fuses at firewall fuse block?
Check battery cables?
Check battery ground?
Check battery to body ground?
Check engine to body ground?
Check fuseable link at battery to main wiring harness?

thanks for replying! I did get it started again last night and as soon as I disconnect the battery cable it shuts off again. so I took the alternator off last and will get it checked today. I hope that's all it is!
