Have been having lots of electrical problems with my Ford Focus, basically i think its easier if i write a list:

At one point my car boot was just opening at its own accord while driving but has stopped now,
Always have a problem with the passenger sides front locking like not locking or unlocking in sequence with the rest of the car,
Speaker on passenger side door doesn't work unless turn music up loud,
My headlights dim when i turn on the windscreen heater (also affects the heating aswell),
Car locks try to lock and sometimes succeed while driving,
Cigratte lighter doesn't work but that dont matter.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

the dimming with tghe heater on is normal thats just the extra load being put on the battery when youre at idle mate the vbattery is being used to run most of the electrics if you rev and the lights brighten thats the alternator kicking in and doing its job it actually prioves its working so thats normal the locks sound like they need replaced usually its just one but add that to the speakers ide check the wire plug that sits between the door when its open for water or corrosion or water inside the door from a faulty window seal electrics do sound like waters got in somewhere ide check the plugs on the doors
