If you were able to "wiggle" the wires going to the starter then you likely either have something causing them to not make contact with the starter I.E. loose nuts or gunk between the wires an stud or the stud/post that is on the starter isnt making contact inside it. try the "wiggle" again while noting if the stud/post is moving abnomaly.

Dang spell check won't work for me!!!!!! Also check to make sure that the wires don't have corrosion going back up the insulation.
