2010 Mazda 3 Electrical Going On and Off while driving Sign In

I drive a 2010 Mazda 3. It's always been super reliable, no problems besides general maintenance with it being older and having it for several years.
This morning I had a dentist appointment and drove there no problem. Then about an hour later I left there to go to work. In the 20 minute drive from there to work, I first noticed my bluetooth kept shutting off and on. It would turn off and have the "Hello" sound and picture but my car was still on and driving. I mainly noticed it while braking or turning.

Then the more alarming thing was power steering. The power steering light came on while turning and it became impossible to turn but then it came back on after a second or two. This happened two or three times in the 20 minute drive to work. At the same time the radio kept doing the bluetooth in and out. Again this was happening while braking or turning mainly.

I'm confused because I drove the same morning and it was totally fine so this seems like it came out of nowhere. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most problems do.

You could have a failing Body Control Module but go over the car inside and out and check all the power supply and ground connections.
