I have been having the exact same issue. I have no mods to the engine, after market exhaust put on 6 months ago. This issue started last week. When it does occur, it resets my radio and climate control. Have you had any luck in diagnosing the problem?

I seem to have found the issue with mine. I took off the battery cables and cleaned them. i found that the negative battery terminal wasn't really tight and there was some corrosion on the post. since the cleaning, it has started every time with no issues. good luck!
