2018 Model X - Display and Dashboard Totally Blank - Car Not Operable

Two days ago I went to use my 2018 Model X - 34,000 miles - garaged - and every screen in the car was dead. There were interior lights and headlights but nothing else. I called Tesla - they said my car needed servicing. It was a challenge coordinating many agencies for the next few hours.

The next morning, before calling the tow truck, I went to the car and everything was now totally functional. I immediately drove to a service center, and the final suggestion was rebooting. Here are error messages that randomly appeared during the screen(s) blackout:

1. Power reduced - vehicle systems shutting down
2. Electrical system power reduced - vehicle may shut down unexpectedly
3. Power reduced - vehicle systems shutting down
4. Air suspension adjustment unavailable - suspension may not be level

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Thanks in advance for your response!:)
