Electrical Issue

HI There

New to the forum but have had a good look around to see if my problem has come up before. Apologies if it has and I have missed it.
I have a 56 plate GP, 1.2. About a year ago the passenger electric front window stopped, no noise etc just wouldn't work from either switches. Decided this summer to get it fixed. However today I get in and my window has stopped working but low and behold the passenger side has now come back to life, from either switch.
Also, don't know if it is connected, I am getting the warning light for bulb replacement etc coming on and when it does the rear passenger side indicator stops working. I have changed the bulb here, there was nothing wrong with the old one. The only thing I have done recently is replace the passenger side front side light bulb that was failing.
Any advice would be good.

Many thanks

Could be a bad earth?
