2005 ST will not start

I've got a 2005 focus ST with stock 2.3L duratec and MTX-75 with approx 135k miles. Several days ago, mom was driving a few miles away from home and car outright died, took several attempts to restart and get home, where it's sat until today. When trying to leave today, it started and got less than fifty feet before dying.

When i tried to check the car out this evening, on first attempt the car powered up the fuel pump, turned over a few seconds, then lost all power to engine and fuel pump. Subsequent attempts to start would not activate fuel pump or starter at all. Dashboard lights up but odometer only reads -------. Accessory stuff also works, car makes all correct dinging noises, etc.

I recently replaced the battery that died due to first real cold snap of the season (i assume). There was some corrosion on the terminals, but i cleaned them up. I'll try to replace some ring terminals, but beyond that i don't have a clue what to do since i don't own a code scanner, and I can't drive to the auto parts store. If anyone could provide me with assistance i would appreciate it
