While I am driving, I periodically have electrical failure. Sometime just the GPS & radio momentarily flash off. The GPS then reboots as though the ignition had been turned off. Lately the problem has become more frequent and more severe. Headlights will also flash, gauges will disengage and or the engine will hesitate for just a second or so. Any thoughts on what might be causing this. The battery cables are tight. Thank you for any advice.

Make sure the cables are clean and tight. Look at all the grounds as well.

Could also be the ignition switch. It may have a intermittent fault.

Are there any warning lights on?

Next thing to do is have it scanned for code/s-Go to the nearest Autozone get it scanned and then comeback with the exact code/s-The CEL coming On is an indication that there's a problem in the engine management system that needs further attention-
