Trash or treasure?

New guy, new car(used).

Bought this 1999 E300 Turbo Diesel euro model Combi Estate wagon the other day)!

100k mi.Test drive good, minor issues, mechanic checkout great. Paid $8k, happy. Off into the sunset I drive.

Minor issue on test drive was front per windows didn't work. Owner said yeah sometimes that happens.(?) I ck fuses and see a lower amp fuse than what it calls for so I put in the proper rated one. Windows work! Great.

Driving along the car seems kinda gutless...not like during the test drive. Cruise control ...nice).
Next time I drive the car, full power like I remember during the test drive. O.k. Good, but hmmm? what's this? No cruise control? Worked last drive:-/. Also Drivers side window not working...hmmm? Power mirror on pax side working but not on drivers side :-/? Power seats not working either!
Next day more of the same but now no drivers side power window as well :-/? Next day....front Power windows,yup! Power seats, mirrors, cruise, Yup! Wow!! But, hmmm? Full power. Yup! Wow, what a great car) everything working!
Next day, :-( electrical gremlins are back again(....no front pwr windows, no power seats, no mirrors, no cruise....turbo though seems perfect.
Trash or treasure!?
All fuses fine, under seat, under dash, under hood..check.

'Where we go from here'?
Thanks for looking)

I take it there was no disclosure of the electrical ground or short problem.
Post this in the appropriate forum the gremlins your chasing and such.
Have any pictures of the wagon.
