Do you have a second battery that you can try? When the battery starts to age it can create errors and lockups, particulary when shooting continuously. As the battery ages, an increased current demand will cause the battery voltage to drop significantly which can easily cause electronic "glitches".
Several years ago I needed some replacement batteries for my 1D2 and the only thing I could get before my trip were aftermarket types. They worked OK except shooting at a high exposure rate would cause the camera to lock up but once I replaced them with new OEM batteries the camera was fine. Although there are probably OK aftermarket batteries I would stay with the real Canon variety even though they are expensive.

A few years ago I tried a non Canon battery and had nothing but problems with it. In particular if I was doing Continuous shooting the camera would turn off. Gave up on the battery and only use Canon now. BTW my understanding is the camera switches back and forth between he two batteries, it may have the problem when it switches to the non-Canon battery.

Great question, I have. Unfortunately, when I purchased the grip I didn’t know that was there and tossed the door into a bag. It’s disappeared since
I did the same thing, then I happened to read the instructions (something I seldom do) and saw where the removed battery door storage was and took about 20 mins. to find and put the door where it belongs. Taught me to always at least scan the instructions.
