Default Accord 2003, won't start

Please someone help diagnose the problem.

I put a new battery in my Accord about month and half ago, the alternator was changed a year ago as well, but when I was driving today, I just saw the red battery light warning light in the dashboard. I stopped the car at a safe spot after driving it for about 5 minutes.

I tried starting it after few minutes, the car was completely dead. None of the lights in the dashboard were coming on, I couldn't open the car locks with the remote, when trying to start the car, the engine wouldn't crank either and starter wasn't making any sound either.

One of my friends tried giving me a jump start too, but I still wasn't able to start the car. Please help me figure out what the problem is. Thanks so much in advance.

Are both battery terminals clean and tight?

Main fuseable link maybe fried. (Follow the thinner wire from the positive battery terminal to the engine compartment fuse box, that wire should be attached to main fuse)
I guess, the next question is: what caused that fuse to blow?

Look at wiring car’s diagram. Maybe a relay went bad.

Is there are some kind of jerk generates when you see the red light..There are a main fuse that defuse instantly, it seems there are a battery fixture issue also..
