Interior Lighting problem #1

Volkswagen 2005 Golf: both front exterior lights, day time and night time went out. The fuse was good and the light bulbs were out. Apparently, the wiring had a malfunction which also caused the interior light on the climate controls to go off. The fuse was good as well. Another malfunction from thevw company. Lastly, driver side front window went down while driving to work 25 mph. I did not touch the window nor tried to open or close it, it went done completely and it is inside the door. . . It won't go up nor down. It is not broken either. It is very dangerous to drive with no window in the winter. Snow, hail. Rain can happen while the window went down while driving. It's very unpleasant to have wind and cold of 3 degrees below zero hit your face and go in the car to the other passengers. The hail, rain or snow can that can get in the car can cause further damage inside the car.
