1998 Chevrolet Express 1500 Question: engine stalling or not starting

engine sometimes stalls while driving or will not start/turn over at all. There's no power wheen this happens. I will wiggle the cables from the battery to the starter and then it will start and run fine until next time -

Check out your battery cables and starter system. Seems you are near to finding the problem. -

Turns out both + and - cables were loose to the battery terminal. Can't believe it was that simple. Thanks. -
