This actually happened to me yesterday. When I first got in my car yesterday after not having driven it in days, the SYNC went black and reset and all my station resets and odometer readings were gone but it started. Hmm, that was weird I thought. Then later in the day, night time actually, I tried to start it and everything was just DEAD! No power on anything and my key wouldn't work. I poked around the battery and touched the steel bracketing coming out of one of the terminals and saw some lights come on. I think that was on the negative terminal but couldn't see too well in the dark. I then tried to start it and it fired up and ran fine. Note to self: put a small flashlight in the car and remember to tighten up that connection.
