Low voltage can cause these symptoms. I am not saying that is the only possible cause but we need to start there. After the car has been off for at least 4 hours, is the battery voltage good near 12.6 volts. While running with the blower, wipers, and headlights on, is the battery voltage between 13-15 volts?
Did the radio sound stop or the screen go blank?
Dashboard info are you referring to the message center in the instrument cluster?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

That is just an invite if you need to look over OEM guides that I pay for to help customers.
