If the heated rear window AND the rear wiper don't work,then it could be a case that there are broken wires into the tailgate.I'm not 100% certain if the Focus gives problems with this,but a lot of other makes and models do.It could also be linked to the interior light too....

Older Ford models had contacts that completed the circuit when you close the the tailgate,but I'm not sure about the Focus.Also,earlier Fords used to lose the earth to the tailgate and you had to take the hinge pins out,clean them up,and all would start working again,it might be worth having a look at that on yours.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
