Dunno if it is your problem but have had this same 'died without warning' effect from nothing more than a corroded battery clamp or terminal at the starter with the same problem.
A cheap multimeter will tell you if there is any life at all and by measuring at the terminals when having someone turn the key, then doing the same at the clamps themselves will tell you quickly if it is simply failed contact at the battery.
If the battery measures ~ 12.6 volts with no load (nothing turned on) and still the same with the key turned to start, then the terminals are at fault.
Something I have never seen before happened to one of our sons just yesterday; his Optima (costly) battery lost contact INSIDE of the battery!
It measured zilch until we dropped it on the ground (on purpose) then it measured normally 12.6 VDC.
We reinstalled it and again, as soon as he attempted to start the Jeep, even the underhood light went out and didn't come back on and the battery again measured 0 volts.

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

If you are asking about the battery light, there is a battery temperature sensor at the front of the battery tray to the right of the battery holddown hardware. If the snow loosened the wires or blocked the airflow to the sensor, the battery light will come on. The battery and alternator voltage can be correct, and the sensor will make the light come on.

95 prizms are known for starter problems if they last 2 years you are lucky..They just get way to hot where they are......And are a pain to replace....

does the vehicle have an anti theft device on it if so it may need to be reset. usually all you have to do is unlpug the negative batt cable. for about 5 mins.and reconnect it. if this does not solve the problem look i the owners manual to see how to override the system.
