Default 2002 MPV sputters/loss of radio

These forums are a great help! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one experiencing some of these problems! I did have something new come up today, however...

To start off, my 02 MPV is approaching 60K miles. Several months ago, I had some delay with the car starting. We replaced the battery, and that seemed to take care of the problem. Not long after that, I started to get an intermittent sputter/miss. We added some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank, and washed the engine at the same time. It ran pretty rough, but we saw that there was quite a bit of moisture in the plugs. We opened it up, let it dry and then it was back to the original intermittent missing. We pulled the codes off the computer, and there was just one code in there: missfire on cylinder #5. Thenall of a sudden tonight my radio/clock & cigarette lighter all went dead.Looking at other posts, it sounds like I should check the coil, but now with the radio dying and knowing that I had to replace the battery a few months ago, I'm wondering if there is some sort of electrical problem this something that is common as well??? Also, which cylinder is #5??

I appreciate any advice you may have for me!
