Any electronic module on the high speed CAN bus can cause this issue.
Most vulnerable is ABS and CEM. Rarely that can be ETM (throttle module) and ECM (engine module)
To check ABS first. You need to remove connector and place 120 Om resistance between 10-11 pins (CAN terminator). If the issue stops reproducing you can try to re-solder ABS.
It it still exists CEM can be the culprit. You cannot remove it like ABS because it is main vehicle computer.

Engine ECU also can be the culprit if car sometimes stalls (and you cannot start engine without making cold start via disconnecting battery ground cable). That can be dying flash.
Usually if dashboard dies but engine continue working ECM is ok.
Unfortunately none of both ECM and CEM are easy to replace by used one working modules.
Both of them needs at least solder station to 'marry' with your car.
Watch carefully at symptoms what is first and what is second when glitches are reproduced. Any detail can help.
