Anyone have this or something similar happen to their car? I don't want to take it to the shop because I can't recreate it, but I'm not sure at all where to start troubleshooting. Any ideas?
i had a similar thing happen to me last summer.. once on a bumpy dirt road and another time on very smooth interstate...
driving along and all's well then all the lights flicker (outside the car and dash/mft lights) go out for a nano second, then go back on and all's well again.

Happened twice about 3 weeks apart then never again since July... very odd..

was unable to recreate the event (driving on a variety of roads, road surfaces and various speeds) and as it hasn't happened in four months im hoping it was some gremlin that has left the room lol.
