Not sure if wiggling the wires is what made it start again or not if it just dies like somebody turned the key off it is probably the CPS (Cam Position Sensor)

WHICH WIRES DID YOU WIGGLE? SOME TIMES THE ICP AND OR THE IPR SEALS DEGRADE FROM THE DIESEL RESIDUE AND LET THE WIRES FALL OUT. WAS THE WIRES NEAR THE FUEL FILTER. DID THE TACH MOVE WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE?

CHECK THE ICP AND IPR TERMINALS AND CONNECTORS TO MAKE SURE THE WIRE DIDNT COME OUT OR ARE LOOSE. CHECK THE MAIN HARNESS WERE IT COMES OVER THE LEFT VALVE COVER TO MAKE SURE ITS NOT RUBBING ON THE COVER.

I'd take it to the last place that did any work on it at all and say "it's been doing this since you were last here and ask what did THEY do ? "
