If the car is equipped with remote door locks, make sure the batteries in your remotes are good. If the batteries check out fine, then the problem could be with the "BCM". Body Control Module. In that case the module would have to be scanned for error codes. That should only be done at a dealer or by a qualified individual.

My 1993 Chevy Lumina passenger side window will not roll down, and the automatic door locks have stoped working? What would be causing this?

First of all check the fuse to the remote unit of the winder .
Once the main panel board can be removed you can find the voltage to the main unit which can be a possible break of connection in the door hinges of the driver side.

Your voltage check to the unit will confirm if there is a break or a faulty panel or a jammed motor.

1997 villager just started locking the doors automatically

This is a common issue. You have poorly adjusted inside lock rods, or water in your door lock actuator connector behind the door trim panel , or you need to cut one wire in the driver door wire harness to defeat the autolock function. Go here for info on what to do. See files and also links for this issue.

Radio comes on when door closes even with engine off

This is an obvious short or a pinched wire. Start by checking the wires that go to the door for the locks, power windows, side view mirror etc. Bend and pull gently on each until the radio comes on. Remember it only comes on when the door is closed so try to copy the shape the wires would take in that position. Good luck.

Yes you can do this yourself BUT make sure you get the plastic clips to the lock rods before you order. That is what is probably wrong with the door handle.
