When you move the battery, you move everything that's attached to it. could be a defective battery cable or loose/corroded connections. It could even be a fault in the battery terminals; shorting inside the battery. If you don't know car mechanics, have a mechanic diagnose this & fix it. It's not a major item, but if not fixed, this could eventually leave you stranded.
