you need to get a NEW battery, then follow the black 1/0 cable (not the battery cable clamp end) but the other end....unbolt that connection and wirebrush till shiny the lug and chassis then re-assemble them....also the 1/0 cable to the motor block (near the alternator)~ get everything free of corrosion and turn the key~

That sounds like the alternator
