Problems Starting after a Alternator Replacement

Here goes. I replaced my alternator yesterday. After i got everything back together I started the car (with help from a jump pack) and the car ran fine. I let it run for a bit to let the battery charge back up. I then turned off and on and everything seemed to work as usual. Later that night I started the car it fired right up went to turn the headlights on and it died. now with the key off the security light blinks when I turn to the on position I only see the oil light dimmly lit. When I turn to crank it absolutly nothing happens. The battery was reading 12.6V. Electrical is not my forte. Fuses are straight forward but How do you know if a relay is fried?
