Driving at night, first the D on the dash goes dark, battery went to zero and car would not go, gas engine would not activate. Put in park, turned off, restarted and everything was then fine. This is a 2013 SE. Any ideas?

Maybe a bad 12v Batt. connection. :headscratch:

So, since you didn't mention the dash going dark, I'm assuming you had 12 V power.  I'd be somewhat concerned as you apparently didn't get a warning message.  I don't recall anyone having this happen to them. 

 

If "D" went dark and the battery symbol went to zero and the 12 V system apparently was up, it may be an issue with the SOBDMC (the hybrid power control module) or the BECM (battery electric control module).  Unless you want to pay the dealer $100 or so for a diagnostic scan, isn't it time to invest in the ForScan App so you can scan these and other modules as I indicated to you when you ask about the PID for the transmission fluid temperature in another thread.  :)   There may be DTC stored as maybe a module lost power, couldn't communicate with other modules and so forth.

Actually I have the Forscam app and odbll module just didn't think to check since there was warning. Thanks for jogging the memory!
