Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It will take some testing at the time the problem is happening to determine exactly what is going on but it appears you have a bad ignition switch. The items you mentioned receive an ignition switched power feed and if they're all being lost at once it usually indicates loss of power from the ignition switch. A bad ignition switch commonly caused loss of the combination of items you mentioned.
