gremlins in the system

over the last week my 2013 SDV8 has started doing some odd things.
The most annoying of which is the passenger door and rear door on drivers side not unlocking. I usually have the "auto door lock over 10mph" set but when I get to my destination the passenger can't get out even if I press the unlock button on the drivers door. I can open it from the outside if I have the key in my pocket.
The second problem is that the car seems to not be able to recognise the phonebook on my iphone 6 when it always has in the past (though there has been an iOS update recently so might not be the cars fault)
The other issue was the cooling fan coming on on the passengers chair when it was set to hot (this happened once) and one of the rear 12v power points has stopped working.
If it was a PC I'd reboot it, if it was an old TV I'd give it a thump. What can I do to my car??
Any advice on any of the above, more than welcome!
thanks
Jon

thanks stan- what would I be checking for? I can pop a multi meter across to check voltage but is there anything more complicated than this I need to be aware of?

a 'drop test' would be ideal and most tyre centres/garages can do this....it might not be the battery but its a good place to start...
