Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're moving the battery cables and the vehicle powers back up then the issue is at one or both terminals. Moving the cables or terminals is disturbing a poor connection and allowing it to make contact and current to flow again.

The problem could be with the terminals or it could be a cable issue. The first thing you'll want to do is make sure the terminals are clean and tight. If ok then odds are there is a poor connection between one of the cables and terminals.
