when you try to turn on the car is it just dead or does it spin over

It's just dead and the I go to move the cable that connects to the terminal and it will turn on

you have a bad connection to the battery. you should never be able to move the cables freely. tighten the blots that hold them on after you clean the battery up and that should solve your problem

Look first off who checked the battery and your alternator..where did u have it check. A good a relyable wat to see if the alternator is gone out. Start the car normally and when on disconnect your positive or negitive battry terminal .. if ur car just dies then ur alternator is bad .. if it stays on u know it might be ur battery. Its better to check the battery when its out if the car...try that first..
