Default 2018 q5: won’t start

I stopped on the side of the road to adjust something in my trunk. I stopped and put car in park. When i got out i noticed all windows were down a few inches. When i went to get back in, car was off and won’t start.

MMI works and so does AC/heating lights. Dash screen does not turn on. My parking aid light is blinking. Tried my wife’s key fob and that doesn’t work either. My trunk wont open now either. My brake peddle feels hard to push. Jumping it does t work.

I called service and a tow coming.

Any guess on what’s wrong?

Our 2019 q5 is now doing the same thing. Was there a fix for this???? Our vehicle is two weeks old. We’re planning on returning the vehicle because of this. It doesn’t make sense.

Perhaps a Q5 owner could help?

I've never had that happen to my '10 Q5, '15 A8, '17 Q7 or '19 Q8 which share recent electronics. Might ask the question in the Q5 forum.
