My car has an automatic transmission.
It sounds like you may have a faulty connection within the battery cables or potentially bad cable terminal ends. If the connection within the cable is faulty or the terminal end are bad, tightening down the cable ends would potentially cause the lack of current continuity. I would suggest having the cables and terminals tested to be sure they are still good and produce the proper current.
