With so many electrical problems, I would start by checking the battery first. A poor or corroded connection here can cause a world of problems. Have the same technician hook jumper cables to the car and pull fault codes (if any) before disconnecting the battery. If you need help having this looked at, a certified pro from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to inspect your electrical system in order to get your car back safely on the road.
