Battery connections maybe tight but in between the terminal and the post could be dirty. Remove and clean terminals and post.

Next thing to check is the starter tap on starter with a hammer and have someone else try to start vehicle at the same time and see if it starts. And also if you can get to the starter solenoid cross the two connections with a screwdriver and see if it will start

Tried the tapping on the starter already. Nothing happened.
