i want to blow up my car

ok so. here is my issue, my car wont start after replacing the old cracked battery, and putting in a brand new one. when i put the new one in and got the termanals hooked up after replacing those as well (brand new). i went to turn the car on and it wouldn't start, the wipers came on without me touching them and the gauge needles went all the way up and back down and also the mileage numbers turned to dash marks. what the hell is going on with my car. i have one idea, that i might have killed my alternator because the cracked battery always needed to be charged when running and i was using my stereo system with all this going on. could that be it?!?!?! i really dont want to replace the alt. i really cant afford to spend another $250 on this dumb ass car, im so over fixing things on it, i just want to drive it
