Hi..
If it were me checking id certainly start with the battery / charging system on these first,it very common for failing batteries to cause symptoms like that,because those systems you see flag up on the screen/dash rely alot on a healthy battery/charging system to work effectively..rather than jump straght in with an expensive BSI replacement..The battery like you say would need to have it tested first before you go out buying one..normally when a battery struggles to hold charge then it can cause alot of issues like you see when coming to start the car until of course the alternator has recharged the battery thus those warnings go out..I do hope this helps
