Last night driving I noticed interior lights(dash and clock) were very dim as with headlights. Battery light has been off and on for a while but yesterday consistently on. Got home my dad took my battery out of the car and tried 2 different batteries. Neither batteries worked unless a hot box was jumping them. Tried charging a battery and again nothing. What is happening/wrong?
Battery no longer wishes to play. on 1997 Toyota Tercel

Have the charging system tested, and a possible dirty/bad wire connection.

also an alternator test and check would be good to do at this point

I ended up replacing the alternator and all is well. Thank you.
