Also, the driver’s side latch had stopped working and I’m not able to open the driver’s door electronically any more. This has happened several times.

There have been 2 recalls for a failed driver door window power switch which also disables the driver door locking mechanism. These recalls are 14309 (current recall) and 13V-248 (the original recall). Contact your dealer for service under these recalls.
