If the door itself will not stay closed then it is not the power locks but the latch that is malfunctioning, the locks only allow or disallow the latch from opening when you try to open the door.  Thoroughly lubricate the latch mechanism on the door with something like WD-40 and inspect it for damage, make sure the bolts that hold the latch within the door are tight and are aligned correctly.  After you lubricate it, close and open the door to work the lubricant in.  Also if you have child lock switches on the door, make sure the switch is fully off or on.  If all else fails then the handle/latch mechanism may need to be replaced.

Blower work fine but still dont get no heat or defrosters could use some help thank you

It sounds like your heater controls are not working. They are usually operated by a vacume line. check under dash passenger side behind glove box for the vacume line disconected ps check engine side first its easier. if vacume line is good chech vacum at heater box their is a meatel vacume unit that opens and closes the heat and defrost doors. if your heat is only comeing out of the defrosters The doors under the dash are not opening and closeing. ChecK the metal vacume unit . A vacume pump can be purshed at parts store some have a loner program.

Window will not go back up after closeing doors,coyiues to go down each time you pull up on out side handle.

To reset the windows you need to get in the car make sure both doors are completely shut. Roll the driver window all the way down, keep your finger on the down switch for about 8 seconds then roll it up and keep your finger on the up switch for about 8 seconds do the same for the passenger. If you ever replace your battery this will have to be done. ( ps don't take your finger off the buttons when your rolling them up and down)

Driver's side back window not working. I checked the window motor and it working fine. What next?

check wiring from drivers door to inside of car, wires sometimes split in half from door opening and closeing so much, if wiring is ok, the master contorl switch on driver door is bad.

Door ajar warning going off

You need to adjust or replace the switch in your door jam. It is set too far in, and any pressure is making it connect.
