Default Electrical gremlins 05 base model help?!

05 not convertible in my case. Random but ongoing electrical issues including
CD player cycling continuously even though no CDs in radio
Air bag light on with or without passenger in front seat
Transmission not properly coming out of first gear
All lights on shifter showing as in that gear
Lift gate cycling unlocked while in park while car is running (lift gate only opens when key is used)
Battery light on intermittent only while engine is running and after about 5-15 minutes of driving.
Engine light on intermittent only while engine is running
Battery is drained when car is left unused for more than 24 hours (currently not issue as battery cut off switch was installed)
Battery ground is clean and good. Battery is new (December 13)
Alternator is supplying proper load to battery
MFS switch has been replaced (nov 13)
Where do I start to run this down?

Welcome to the forum

I deleted your other post because you don't need to post the same thing twice.

Did you read the other posts that you attached you post to? A couple of the answers pointing to the battery. Have that checked (most auto stores will do this for free) and look at the battery terminals and connection for corrosion.
