1987 944 Start up/cut off problems

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 170,000;

I have a 1987 944. I am the third owner. It has 170,000 miles on it. For the past two years, the car has had intermittent start up problems. When the car did not start, I would jiggle the wires in the harness in front of the firewall, and the car would start. Until last October, the engine would not cut off once it started. But last October, the engine began to cut off while I was driving the car. The car would start again immediately, but one evening I was unable to start the car after it had shut off. The car has been sitting idle since then. Could you advise me what the cause of the start up problem might be and how to fix it?
