    Lately as I am driving down the road, the electronics in my truck shut off/turn back on. Its completely random and I haven't been able to find a pattern (time, bumps, driver input, etc). Sometimes it turns off and immediately comes back up (often displaying a service electronic braking error)

    As you can see in the video, I am travelling down the road about 30-40 mph with the LCD/gauges off (the issue is currently happening) and then it comes back to life, and then flickers once again around the 20 second mark.



    I am looking to take it into the dealer but wondering if this is a known issue or if there is a fix I can try myself first.

    Anything happening on your radio when this occurs?

    You know.... I really don't know. I think the radio still plays, since I recall muting my music to record my video, but never noticed the display doing anything abnormal. That doesn't mean that it isn't, I've only noticed it with my instrument cluster. I will have to check when it happens again.

    I've had this happen once while using navigation on the radio. I was just curious if yours was in use too.
