What do you mean by mess with the terminals? Is she moving them around or is she messing with the battery cables? If she is messing with the cables, then they are either loose and just need to be tightened at both ends, or they are broken and need to be replaced, or they just need to be taken off, cleaned and them put back on.

Had a Cherokee for years.

Mine would do that, for me it was the cable coming off the battery to the starter. It was loose on teh starter end. Check the cables and grounds too.
