Engine shuts off?

I was driving along approaching an intersection. BAMM..engine shuts off. So I throw it in neutral and turn the key - then EVERY shuts off. Not even hazard lights!

Had someone come to give me a boost, popped the hood and connected the jumper cables - nothing. looks like bad connection on the battery. Cleaned off the corrosion, tightened the connections. Finally boost works.

NOW there is a ticking (lifters?) and Oil light is on (and check engine light). These were NOT on before it shut off. Checked the Oil - ITS FULL.

Its been suggested that perhaps the Oil pump driveshaft is worn (as well as the bad connection on the battery).

Any help with this? Really can't afford a shop hosing me on labour fees, especially this close to christmas :(

Thanks!
