Without any further testing that would be my guess.

The radio takes 5 amps to run. The starter takes over 200.

could it b something wrong with the fuel line
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 4 months ago.

Why would a FUEL line cause the battery to go dead?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
but wen I tried to give the car a boost after I changed the fuel pump it still wouldn't start with the boost
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 4 months ago.

Do you have a multimeter?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
no sir I dont
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 4 months ago.

Then youre gonna have to get one and do some testing before I can tell you whats going on. It sounds to me like a bad battery. If you dont have a meter take the battery out and take it to a local parts store to be charged and tested.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 4 months ago.

Let me know if you need anything further. Thanks
