hi ta2mark

the battery light flickering sounds like the alternator is about to fail , id get this sorted before you end up getting stranded . if its a valeo alternator you can get a regulator/brushpack which is the usual suspect for under 20 but the hard part is removing alternator from car.

ive got the same engine in my laguna and the temperature never gets above a third of the way up and as a result ive never heard my fan kick in. you may have a leak somewhere causing overheating, again this could be a warning of a repair needed .. check for water leaks when parked overnight.

blower motor only works on number 4 when resistor pack fuse is blown, this can be repaired or replaced, do a forum search for more info

as for slow window operation could this be due to low battery voltage ? alternator failing? id get the door cards off and lube all sliding parts with vaseline as this does not retain water and its easily cleaned from glass, it will reduce friction on the moving parts causing less strain on the electric window motors
