Having problems with your 1999 Toyota Camry ?

1999 camry battery died. Wont stay charged.

\015 I was driving my car and I noticed the airbag light came on then the interior lights began to go dim and the car turned off. With the cables attached I turn the ignition without turning the car on the only display on the dash that's not visible is the battery light. What does that mean the fact that the battery lights does not come on before turning the car on?\015
