Question: How to I determine this cause...

If i hit a bump or leave the car overnight it occasionally stalls out.. i pop the hood and move the battery and the car starts up again.. The gauges occasionally light up and battery level is maxed out, (without a stall after hitting a bump)... when it stalls i loose power to everything and wont turn over at all. I am pretty sure its a bad wire, but I dont know where to start.. Is it ground? would this cause the stall? its definitely coming right off the battery
