Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're moving the positive battery cable and that's truly allowing it to start then you have a connection issue there. Assuming the terminal itself is clean and tight, if you're moving the positive cable at the battery and allowing it to start then there is voltage drop in the connection between the cable and terminal. A voltage drop test at the time the problem is happening would confirm there is an issue there, and if so then the terminal will need to be replaced.
