Exclamation 2001 Focus LX- Help!

My first Focus- heck, my first FORD, has some issues.

Maybe its just because its so old now.

Anyways. I was driving along, and the left turning light would not turn off anymore. concerned, I pulled over to make sure that the rear light wasn't on all the time. Thankfully it wasn't, so I continued on. Then, after going over a railway, my radio cut off power. When I parked in a parking lot, to make sure that the left signal was working, the door made its beeping noise- which did not shut off when the car did.

The noise hasn't returned, the radio is still as iffy as ever- I have to practically push every button on the thing to get it to work! But the headlights... the front one was not working, I had a friend look at it. It was, not, working. I took it into Canadian Tire- and then... it worked.

Is my car possessed? Is this sort of car-fixing itself thing common among Ford's? Or this sort of rapid electrical breakdown?

... I miss my old car. Help would be greatly appreciated, as this Focus has to last me the next two years until I can afford something else.

^Also, the radio in fofo's are not good to begin with, they start shitting out after a few year. I.E not ejecting CD's, the face blinking randomly, and no signal sometimes.

And focus's are great little economic cars, that are fun to drive too. They just need a little TLC to get running right, especially after 10 years or so.
