Q: Battery cables

asked by on

I have a 2010 Nissan Sentra. A couple of times, I have got in the car, turned the key, and nothing happens. Battery terminals are clean. I jiggled the cables and it started. The next time this happened, I did the same thing. I jiggled the cables again, and nothing. I did it again, and this time the engine cranked, but didn't start. I'm lost, help!

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
