Has this ever happened to you? ( Electrical )

Hi all,

I haven't driven my car for awhile and I was planning to take it to work tomorrow. I haven't driven it in over a month and the last time I went to move it the battery was dead and had to put it on the charger overnight so I thought it would be a good idea to take it for a quick spin this evening. Turns out it was because I got to a stop sign about a mile from my house and out of no where the car just dies. Like I got nothing other than the door lights and they were just barely on. No four ways, nothing. So I call my wife to come give me a hand and after I hang up I open the door and start pushing the thing backwards to get it off the road. I get maybe 4-5 feet and bang all the lights, seat belts and door chimes come back. Starts right up and I drive it home. I only spent a couple minutes under the hood with the car running shaking wires and pulling on connectors to see if I could get it to die again but had no luck.

I'm thinking some stinking rodent got in and chewed on a wire. So my question is, has anyone had a similar situation or any ideas where to start looking? Thanks

Pull the battery connections off and clean and grease them. Also check the ground stud under the fusebox on the wheel well.
