Gauges / Displays Fail After Engine Shutdown

Hey guys I'm new to TT. Maybe someone has had this problem. Background:

2014 X30 7" Touchscreen
Batteries Charged (2 new ones.)

Got out to the lake yesterday. After turning accessory key to the ON position all gauges were dead and screen wouldn't boot up. Blower / Bilge pumps worked however. Suspecting a low / dead battery, I installed a fresh one. Everything fired up as normal. Got out onto the lake and drove for about 30 min straight. Volts showed 14.1-14.3. Shutdown the engine to get out some ropes. 30 seconds later everything was dead and off again. After troubleshooting breakers and batteries with a volt meter everything seemed good. Alternator is definitely working.

I decided to try starting the engine with no gauges or display and it started up no problem. After about 1 minute of driving everything booted back up. Repeated above scenario 3 times.

Any ideas?

Best

Eric

Aric thanks for responding. Battery selector switch is good from what I can tell. Initially I checked it and couldn't find anything wrong. How do you explain engine being able to start with no gauges / displays. Volts are obviously good. From what I know having the Acc Key in the ON position enables the batts to start the motor. Maybe a bad relay for the display somewhere? Just odd that they turn on after driving for a minute.
