Are these related? (Electrical issues)

I have a 2012 Focus SE 5spd with 90k miles and its been great until the past three months.

First issue was both my front windows stopped working. The drivers side stopped completely, but now my passenger side will work occasionally very slowly/struggling.

Then a month went by and my fuel level sensor threw an engine code and stopped working.

This week my airbag light has come on, but I havent checked to see if it's also throwing a code yet.

I feel like these issues aren't related, but I fear that maybe they're all connected to something and its going to make my life worse. My car still drives great though, so I'm not too bummed.

Could be just a coinci-dence. Lest start by taking door panels off. Use a rubber hammer whack the window motors. Then get multi meter and check switches.

Don't know how a fuel level sensor could "throw" an engine code, BUT if you get an EVAP code such as for the purge valve do NOT ignore it.

Left unrepaired, that can result in a collapsed fuel tank & incorrect fuel level readings.

The code is P0462 - FORD - Fuel Level Sensor 'A' Circuit Low

I don't know how hard it is to fix, but I only have enough money to fix one thing atm and I'm pretty sure I need my windows to work to pass inspection x.x

But I'll drag the multimeter out and see if it's the switches or the motor. My money is on the motors as I can hear a thump in the door when I press the button.
