Default 2019 STi car turning off while driving?

Was on the highway earlier and all of a sudden, my infotainment turns off, most of the lights on the dash pop up and I hear my doorlocks clicking. This goes on for about half a second, and it turns back on. This whole on and off thing goes on approximately every 10 seconds. No weird smells. I can still gas and brake the whole time and nothing was weird there. I was 15 minutes away from home so I just kept driving.

What is going on with my car? It's completely stock. I'm home now but haven't turned the car back on yet, thinking it might be related to the heat outside, and just letting it cool off.

My fault. I didnt properly tighten the battery when I reconnected it. Issue is fixed. However, did that cause any damage driving it for 15 minutes like that?

No kidding! I can't believe all of the self loathing Subaru owners didn't flood this thread with "Subaru is garbage..", "Subaru is going downhill..", and "So glad I got out of Subarus..." comments!
