it can also be some relay or some connector that has some oxide and broke the connection just when you turned.
Maybe you can handle them to make contact and thereby find one or more of the faults that way.

That happened to me with my old bush truck, it's an 88 4x4 Silverado. I was on the highway, punched it to pass someone and everything powered down. The speedometer stayed exactly where it was, fuel gage went to full, turned out to be the ECM ground on the thermostat housing that broke. I guess it was just holding with a few strands of wire and the sudden torque of the engine caused it to breakoff when it rocked.
