Change gearbox oil, before you do that check the upper and lower shift boots and turret oil. Do it soon, if gearbox locks up pushing the clutch in won't save u wheels are permanently connected to gearbox when in gear, a high speed lockup is not going to make your day.

While you're at it do the diff oil aswell

Condensation at winter time gets in the motor and corrodes it, especially its electrical contacts, if its not too serious yet, beating on your door panel down low with your fist can sometimes cause the electrical connection to connect and work again... Otherwise check your power to that motor while operating the switches and while any safety lock-out switch on the driver's switch panel is in the correct operating position. (ignition on also). Less common is any corrosion to the wiring harness plugs. Try the window from both drivers and passengers switches. Replacement motors should run about $250 installed. It requires taking the door panel off and usually the side tracks and glass removed.

If the problem isn't fixed the error code will keep returning. You'll need to get the ignition system checked from the spark plugs back over, (plug leads, ignition coil, etc). The injectors might need checking as well.

most are vacuum operated, maybe a broken, leaking or clogged vacuum line. If electric maybe a corroded or broke wire.

Buy yourself a Haynes repair manual. It should be able to explain it to you.

Get a mechanic to check the brake fluid levels immediately and request a flush of the brake lines. Sounds like you may have some air mixed in with the hydraulic fluid reducing the braking efficiency. Do the brakes feel spongy when applied in a quick stop? If so get it looked at as a matter of urgency. You just never no when you may really need emergency braking to avert some other inconsiderate motorist or pedestrian!
