It usually corrects itself in 10-30 minutes, with engine running or not. Does not trigger check engine light either.

the odds are this issue is caused by bad ignition switch as that powers those fuses that power those things going out

if there are no codes and the battery cables are clean and tight then i would replace the ignition switch next
