On Guam, every electrical substation fence has traps for brown tree snakes, a non indigenous snake who likes to cause short circuits by slithering into/onto places they shouldn't.

Long shot, but there is a vacuum hose manifold behind the airbag which should have been a glove box. I had one hose come loose from there once. Worth checking.

I had basically the same problem. New lift pump solved it. You might as well do the fuel line O rings. They need to be renewed every few years anyway.
