Q: battery and anti-theft lights come on and car quits, whats going on? on 1996 Pontiac Sunfire

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I replaced everything new in my car (battery, alternator, belt, plugs, plug wires, head gasket, heater core) and when driving it the battery and anti theft lights come on and it just quits and wont start back up unless someone boosts me off but that only last for a few mins. I really need to know whats going on, please help me..

these cars tend to have theft deteerent ignitions. if the key is not being read by the ignition, wiggle it around in the ignition until the theft light goes out. if that doesnt work, have your key and ignition checked. hope this helps.
