Question Couple problems on the 08 JKU

The Jeep has been having some trouble lately, more than usual.

* Starting - Jeep won't start more frequently. I think the problem is the neutral safety switch but don't know for sure. Some jiggling of the shifter or moving into Neutral allows the Jeep to start. Just annoying.

* Radio - Navigation stopped working and is throwing an error. Also, the radio volume will go away altogether from time to time. The display works ok but the volume is gone. Turning the volume button doesn't even display any changes on the screen, let-alone anything audibly. Shutting off and turning back on doesn't fix it. After "awhile" left alone it miraculously turns back on.

* Door locks - Everything locks just fine. The driver's side door always unlocks. The other 4 doors (pass, back, rear) will unlock "sometimes" automatically. When they don't work none of the switches work (hitting the button to unlock from the door doesn't work and the key fob doesn't work). Odd that it will work at times and not at others, no rhyme or reason. Locking always works though. The wife is getting frustrated with this one because she has to lean through the Jeep to unlock the doors to let in the kids.

Any ideas? Everything else is working alright.
