Yes, I tried wiping the entire cache partition for the phone (didn't fix the problem), I also tried downloading and installing the latest version of Google Assistant (rather than use the version that came preinstalled on the phone), and I tried individually wiping both the data and the cache for all the Google system apps...none of the above fixed the problem.

So I'm using my Sprint Galaxy S10 5G with a Subaru head unit with Android Auto support. In order to fully use Android Auto (e.g. to use voice recognition to place calls or send text messages) there are two features in Google Assistant that keep getting turned off. They are "App info from your devices" and "Contact from your devices". I keep turning these on under either the Google Assistant notification that appears on my screen or by going to Settings->Google->Account services->Search, Assistant & Voice -> Google Assistant -> Your data in the Assistant. I turn both of the paused services on. Then, some time later (which could be a few minutes or even several days), those services will get randomly "paused" again, without me doing anything to change those settings. The problem is without those services active, when I try to use a voice command to "Send a text to [name]", I just get a response back that says, "Sure, let me get some more information so I can help with that". I want these services to stay on permanently, and I'm getting extremely frustrated that they keep getting turned off. I've tried everything from disabling Bixby's permission to change system settings (assuming it was fighting Google Assistant) to clearing all Google services data and cache and rebooting the phone, but nope, those services keep getting turned off! UGH!!! Please help.
