ZX3, Dash light flicker, electrical

Hello.

I've recently had an issue with my 2003 Ford Focus ZX3. About a month ago, a couple of lights on the dashboard would come on and flash when I'd press the brakes to stop at a light. The guages would also twitch, and the radio would cut out and back on, resetting the cd player. After this happened a few times, my car wouldn't start, just clicking over and over. Sometimes it would start when I wiggled the battery cables, and then it even stopped doing that. I took it to the Ford Dealership and they found my only problem was a dead battery, nothing else. All was well for about a day, and then the same problem arose. This time it restarts when I wiggle the cables. Any idea what the issue may be?

(Also, the factory speaker in the back trunk stopped working, I'm not sure if this is related)

Thanks for any help or advice.
