Mein Auto: 2008 750li

I am experiencing random issues with driver door (only), on open i hear actuator/mechanism engaging for a few seconds. For two weeks it stopped completely working (but luckily still manually opened closed with no issues), and then all of a sudden came back to life.
Additionally, i am getting sporadic PDC malfunctions. I would just as well turn OFF both features but have asked before and i assume not an option.
Prior to purchase i was told a new battery was installed (and no, there is no CPO or warranty/dealer to run back to). Given my background in technology (not auto tech) i am wondering if a REBOOT might be helpful. So my question is this..... Would this be accomplished by disconnecting the battery? Is there anything i would need to do after reconnecting? I keep reading all about coding stuff and dont want to cause myself more headaches by doing this.
Thanks in advance for any help. This forum is a great help (although the more i read i cringe on what ELSE could go wrong).
