SOURCE: Brake lights stay on
Your brake light switch is stuck on, this is also why the cruise is in-op, the cruise is turned off anytime you touch the brake pedal otherwise the car would try to accelerate when you tried braking. The brake light switch is located above the brake pedal, look up the arm the pedal is attached to and you will see it, the switch is not real expensive, and it is easy to install with simple hand tools. As far as the door lock issue fix the brake light switch and try it, not sure it is related unless it all started at the time the brake lights started staying on. Post back after you replace the switch if door problem remains. Thanks

under the rf floor board in the front you will see a false panel after removing carpet. remove false panel by loosening 10 mm plastic nuts your alarm module is 1 of the 2 modules on that false floor-it should have a 820 number in the part number-if it is not obvious call parts dept. and cross reference numbers-unplug module and you won't have worry about that annoying alarm anymore-hopefully i have been helpful

There is a central door locking pump under the back seat, the motor has gone in it, cheap way to repair is to strip it down and put a motor in it from a tyre compreser from argos for under £10 very easy to fit just two wires
