You just answered your own question. CHECK THE BASICS, CHECK THE BASICS, CHECK THE BASICS or VOLTAGE DROPS, VOLTAGE DROPS, VOLTAGE DROPS was what my Ford training instructor used to drill into my head during all his electrical courses. Remember, any electrical component requires POWER and GROUND to operate. Just because you have 12 volts at the connector does not necessarily mean the circuit is intact. What happens when you put a load on it? The best way to test a circuit is to plug a horn or light into it. Especially since a rat made its way there, I would be checking for chewed, frayed wiring.
