Hello Gigi,

if you can twist the battery cables on the battery that is not good, you need to make sure the cables cannot be twisted, so the ends may need to be tighter or replaced. also if the cables are loose the alternator will not be able to charge the battery effectively, so at this point the battery may be dead. you should try to tighten the cables and then get a charger or jump start and see if that helps. let me know, i will do what i can to help.
