Weird electrical

Tonight my 03 986 appeared to be briefly possessed...

1. Turned on my HID headlights, then...

2. The battery light came on and stayed on...

3. One of the two HID headlights went out...

4. And the spoiler popped up.

Shut the car off. Restarted, and everything was fine. Both headlights operated normally, no problem. No recurrence tonight after driving 30 miles.

Ideas?
