I am not familiar with the model but door mechanisms tend to be similar between makes and models and a thought occurs...

When a door is closed the catch is pushed over the striker and when it is fully home the catch latches and holds the door closed. That is what happens when everything is in good condition and correctly adjusted though sometimes some designs of catch can be defeated when the door is allowed to swing with insufficient force to close it, resulting in the catch latching in the closed position while the door is open and consequently the door won't close until the catch is released.

Many but not all door catches will reset when the door handle is operated - some must be reset using a rod or screwdriver mimicking the door striker while operating the door handle. The child safety lock generally immobilises the internal handle but leaves the outside handle and the catch/latch to operate normally.

If the door does not operate predictably as per the owner's handbook, you should assume there is an internal fault - mostly caused by maladjustment and/or a lack of lubrication.

There are 3 fuses that go to the radio. They all located in the fuse panel under the left hand side of the dash. Fuse #22 7.5 amp, fuse#18 20 amp and fuse#12 7.5 amp.

Does it go to 2nd, or neutral? If it's neutral then you've got an input sprag failing and soon it will not move in Drive.

Replace the battery. If that doesn't work replace the fob.

Pull the instrument cluster out of the dash check all the connectors to it for loose pins and also take a look at the printed circuit on the back of the panel, look for any obvious problems. More than likely just pulling the connectors and reinserting them several times may cure this problem.

May be as simple as your headlight switch is either in park position, or there may be a problem with that switch.

Probably - fully computerised cars, I hear from colleagues, often need dealer level diagnostic equipment to "tell" the brain it has had a replacement.
