Default car died while driving

This evening after driving my car for about ten mins, it just powered off (lights, radio, windows, locks)and would not come back on. The battery is less than a month old. I'm thinking its the alternator...any other ideas? I just paid a lot of money for a tune up and really don't have a lot of money left to pour down the drain...please help!

Default RE: car died while driving

I guess you have a Chrysler, what model, engine size, year?

Will it crank? Can you take a voltage reading across your battery posts? Are the battery cables clean, on both ends? Any codes?
