Default FX had *no power* until it did

Bizzare first-time occurrence. 2010 FX50 had absolutely no power in the car: no dash lights, no radio, no accessory power, no courtesy/dome light (not even dim)...nothing. I had just driven it several hours before.

Popped the hood to check the voltage on the battery and it checkout out to be 12v. Went back inside, and the door/dome lights came on, dash lights were on, and it started right up. Turned it off and restarted it again to make sure and it was fine.

First wondered if one of the battery cables had somehow worked loose, but all the radio presets were still there after it sat for about 4 hours.

Anyone ever experience this and find a possible cause/solution?

Sounds like you may have a short in the positive cable line. I had that happen to me on different cars, so i would check there first. Also clean both of the terminals for good measure. As for the radio, I think your presents are stored in memory up to a certain time like maybe a day or two. I know for my QX unless you pull the fuse for the radio the presets stays there for quite a while.
