Only thing I could think of with it happening on turns is something loose in the ignition switch. Does it happen turning left and right and at what point does it come back on?

It doesnt matter which way it happens on roundabouts sharp bends left and right turn it mainly turn back on after about 30 seconds but the weird thing is it doesnt do it all the time it will go like 1-2 week without doing it and then bam turns off its just really random

Any other faults at all with the car like cruise or blinkers don't work, rough idle or noisy steering?
Suddenly cutting out can be caused by a bad DFI or CAS but they usually cut out any time not just while turning.

Not really everything is ok except for the car turning off
