Default bumps and bruises

I own a 2005 Tucson and while I love the car there has been a cascading number of things (odd things) that have been going on that I would love to know if anyone else is experiencing. The first is that my power windows have stopped working. It started out as an occasional thing but then have just stopped working all together. I have tried independent relays then the main relay but nothing works. a friend suggested the wiring harness may have a broken wire, suggestions? The other thing is my car started over heating when I realized that the radiator fan has stopped cycling on and off (odd thing is that I used to notice it cycling as soon as I started the car, normal?) Anyone else notice this or any of the above?

How many miles are on the odometer ?
Some use a circuit breaker for the power windows, checked that?
One of the common places for a wiring problem to develop with power windows is the flexing joint where the wiring passes through to the driver's door.
Overheating can bring problems up the road like warped head(s) and burned valves.

Did anyone confirm that the cooling fan motor itself was OK ?
Some systems defaulted to the fan running all the time to prevent an overheat condition and yet it required repairs.
