Electrics mind of their own??

Hi guys

Little help if possible..

I came to the lights the other week and a BMW pulled up so I thought, right i'll have you as you do, turned the traction control off and the car then stalled. I couldn't start it up at all, the starter motor was turning over but it was as if there was no fuel getting in..

Anyway a passer by kindly offered to give me a push, he pushed me round the corner and as soon as he stopped the car started up fine! I had a warning on my dashboard saying motor control system failure. The car drove fine though so when i got home I disconnected the battery and left it for an hour and plugged it back in, the message hasn't come back and the car has started every time.

But I have noticed a few issues, the windows will no longer go down on their own I have to hold the button up or down for them to move, and the drivers heated seat has stopped working, I thought this might have been a fuse but notice the passenger one works fine.

Then last week the drivers window is now back to normal, ie hold it down for a few seconds and it goes up on its own, but the passenger one is still the same. The main issue I have is the drivers heated seat not working and my back side being freezing in the mornings lol

Oh.. This is all on top of my Dension usb, mp3 converter annoying me by starting from the beginning of folders every time I start the car up.. AGGH!

Can anyone shed any light on any of this lot?
