A loose battery cable can cause no spark at the plugs, it can also cause your car not to start.

Some newer cars need a min. 10 volts to run. Dirty cables can cause the same problem too.

answerdefinetly yes a loose cable stops proper voltage getting to where it needs to be tighten cable and see if that fixes problem loose cable will also prevent proper recharging of battery

Disconnect the battery, remove the spark plug covers and cable, and remove the old spark plugs. Put in the new spark plugs, replace the covers and cable, and reconnect the battery.

if the battery isn't dead, or the terminals loose or dirty, number one cause - ignition problem (spark plugs not getting electricity)
