Everything is good but the electronics

I really enjoy driving the car and it has not given me any problems mechanically. It handles curves in the road and different driving conditions with ease. However it does do some weird things electrically, which initially were amusing but now are getting me down. The ABS light is on 90% of the time but the power windows are now working only occasionally. They used to start working again if I adjusted the mirrors (what the?) but now two of them are frozen. I hesitate to replace the motors in them since the do work occasionally and it feels like the problem is electrical rather than mechanical.
Driving is a lot of fun. It's great for roadtrips and has plenty of room for friends. It hasn't ever broken down.
The ignition coils for each cylinder should be separate instead of in a block since if one goes you have to replace all of them. Surely the electrics can be improved, not everyone finds gremlins in their electrical items amusing.
