Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
You need to try and jump start the vehicle and see if it will start. It sounds like your battery is bad to me. The interior lights are not a good indication of battery conditon, because a starter can pull somewhere between 30-50 amps draw from the battery, where the interior lights may draw 2-3 amps.
Also check your battery terminals for condition. Baking soda and water solution will clean off corrosion, followed by a terminal cleaner from an auto parts store. I would start there. Let me know if that helps.
