Electrical issue - engine stall in 08' M5

During the last 2 weeks, the M5 has 'stalled' with complete electrical loss on 4 occasions. The fob gets 'stuck' in steering wheel and it takes 30 seconds to 4 minutes for electrical to come back and the car starts back up. (clock and date erased each time.)

Weird. Car is CPO. Took to dealer. Battery is only 3yrs old. After two days of diagnostics they could not replicate failure. They charged battery and off I went. Car is under warranty for another 8 months, luckily.

Any other 2008 M5 owners have similar issues? The car has 43K miles and is a 6speed manual, fyi.

Many thanks -

Check the connection to the fuse panel.

Connection solid. Thank you. Since the dealer charged the battery, i've had no further electrical/stall issues. Hopefully, that's that. Fingers crossed.
