Try tightening cables to the battery. If they're corroded, clean them and reconnect.

Won't start, totally dead

Check battery cable ends and cable connections for being tight. Turn on headlights and try moving/jiggling cable ends to see if headlights come on/flicker. If so, suspect poor connections at cable ends or poor cables/grounds

2005 Ford Focus is dead until I wiggle the battery wires

A ground wire that is not grounding, until you wiggle the wires. Follow those wires, there is a loose connection in there. Start at the neg. battery post, clean and tighten. Follow the small wires you can wiggle, see any splices that may have started to pull apart? Find the ground screw or whatever the small wires use to ground, that may be loose. Maybe the small wire goes to that black box? Take it off and look for the ground that isn't grounding.

Problems starting my jeep

It may be the shifter interlock switch - jiggle the shifter into and out of Park.
It may also be the Ground/neg battery cable - they corrode at the fenderwell every 2-3 years. Remove from battery and fenderwell, bruch off white powdery corrosion. Reinstall.
