Multiple waning lights and short stall

2005 E85 Z4 3.0. 47000 miles.

A brand new problem: multiple warning lights come on sometimes. It's not always the same lights. The RPMs drop and the car seems to stall momentarily. It then rights itself and on we go. No diagnostics have yet been run. Any ideas ???? Thanks

Sounds electrical. Check your battery/charging system and pull codes.

I suspected a battery problem. I pulled it and had it tested. It was OK. I cleaned everything and reinstalled the battery. After that the codes were checked, finding none. I think they would have gone away when the battery was pulled. Problem 'seems' to be gone.
