Once or twice a week, the front of the car will start vibrating and shaking right after ignition. It goes away after driving a short distance. I also have the same rough idling where I have to turn off all AC or air vents when idling, otherwise my car struggles and shakes. The radio display also turns off randomly, but the radio still works. I was thinking engine mounts, but maybe electrical problems. Please help!

Do you

It could be a motor mount issue. If it feels like the engine is missing, it should set the check engine light. If that is on, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free. Also, you should check for vacuum leaks.
