This happened to me as well recently, same thing to get it started I wiggled the battery terminal clamps.

It is not always the battery terminals themselves. I suggest you take a good close look at the actual wiring, especially right where the wires are attached to the battery clamps. For me, the 10+ year old copper wiring was old and green oxidized and basically wasn't conducting well. Sometimes moisture gets in there and rots out the wiring. I cut that rotted piece off and put new clamps on the remaining good wire. Wrapped the wiring well and used some dieletric grease. No problems since.

If you can manually twist your terminals by hand, then that would be the fix by tightening them down. Of course to wire brush or sandpaper the terminals on battery and clamps sparkling clean before tightening them. I also spray a corrosion preventer on the terminals. I have not experienced any corrosion with this method. Love this product:
