new to benzworld and just bought a 420sel and need help

i am 18 have just recently purchased a beautiful w126 420sel for only 900$!! the car has 230000 miles on it but recently had a new engine put in with only 57000. The car runs like a dream but has a few electrical issues such as the drivers power seat will not move and recently all but the passengers window have seised to work. Im sure these are all minor electrical issues and would appreciate any comments or suggestions to aid in there repair.
