MODELS SUBURBAN DYING AND WON'T RESTART

I have a 1997 GMC suburban with a 5.7L. Today my wife started it up, went a block or two to a 4 way stop, pulled out and it died. It wouldn't restart either. No lights, panel lights, locks, or anything would work. I am away from home right now, so I had her pop the hood and " wiggle" the battery cables, and it fired up. This happened once before with me driving. She took it to a friends and he said the cables were tight and everything looked ok. Assuming it wasn't the cables, what else would it be.
