Dashboard and all lights turns off/on randomly while driving

Sometimes this causes engine stop running while driving. Dashboard switches off/on within the first 5-10 minutes of driving. When it switches off for a second or longer engine shuts off and the car moves at idle until it stops. When I restart the car everything works fine but dashboard still turns off/on and may shut down engine again.

Here is a video of what is happening:

It still does that with more gas in tank.
There were recent repairs: power steering pump replaced and also a/c compressor being inspected but not replaced. Bottom engine mount was recommended to replace.
Cables on battery are tight, I cleaned the connections. I will check alternator and post the result.
Thank you.
