Car wont Start

This is a strange problem, and it only occurs occasionally.
So sometimes when starting my car I hear one click, then nothing happens. I can still turn the lights on until the click, then they dont work until I move the key back or shake the wires around the battery .For some reason, shaking the wires around the battery sometimes works. Other times I just have to turn the key a few times.
The most frustrating part is that this only happens occasionally. Sometimes it's twice a week, sometimes it happens once a month. It has been doing it more fequently recently. (Twice in the past 5 days)
Any help is great, thanks.

Check your ground wires. Primarily the one grounding the motor to the frame.

Thanks, we checked the ground from the battery and it looks fine. Do you know where the ground from the motor to the frame is located on a 96 v6 3.8 ?
