Couple of Car Issues

Just recently bought my first car. Really wanted a focus, and got it for reasonable price. Had to change some stuff(oil, filters etc.), but nothing much, just the things you change when buying new car.

It's a 1999 Focus Universal.

So It's been already two months, and there are some small, but for me, really annoying faults to it.

Firstly - It's now winter and my car just won't close/open when i press my key buttons. Sometimes it closes, sometimes not. So I've been even standing in snow for about 3-5 minutes trying to unlock/lock it. I read some things here in forum about this problem, but there are so many solutions how to fix, that I don't know what to try. Maybe some specific solution in mind, anyone?

Ok, second problem - My drivers door speaker. When I'm driving, it's just silent. It was playing before, then crackled and now it's dead silence.
I thought - ok. Maybe speaker was dead. I'll change speakers when I have time and money. Then I noticed two things. When I brake - speaker turns on.
Hmm.. weird. So, maybe it's electronics fault. Then week later, I noticed one more thing - When drivers door is open, it's playing how it should be.

Third - I have heated both rear and front windshield. Rear works just fine, front seems like it's dead. Only unfreezing i can get on that window - hot air stream.

If someone has solutions for these faults, please help. Also I don't want to go to repair shop, if I can fix myself. It's my first car and I don't want to waste much money on it, if possible.

Sorry for my bad english, and
Thanks in advance.
