I've been having this happen again lately and complained to my dealer each time it happened. Since the lights clear whenever you restart the car, and no codes store, they said that couldn't even document the issue without seeing it happen in person. Basically, if it happens it has to happen during business hours, I have to drop whatever I'm doing, not turn the car off, and immediately drive to the dealer.
After months of the lights, it finally happened when I was able to drop what I was doing and swing by the dealership. I got there just as the last tech was leaving, but they hooked up SSM and got a steering angle sensor error. They don't know if that is actually the problem, but it's the best guess right now.
I just got the car back after having the steering angle sensor replaced. It's not a cheap part ($335 list... OUCH) but it was covered by my SAS Gold plan.
Now the only thing left to do is sit and wait to see if it happens again.
Hopefully this gives others an avenue to pursue for this strange problem.
