First thing is to take it to an autoparts store and have them read the codes. Autozone and orielly etc do this free. The other things sound like a bad BCM. This is an electronic control board that runs all the interior funtions.

With drivers door open the engine temp light comes on

Replace door switch and wiring. I would bet real money on bare wire in the door but the switch is cheap enough and has the whole thing as a unit.

What would cause the driver side front door speaker and the passenger side rear deck speakers not to work. When if fade the sound all the way to the front with no sound in rear and with the balance turned...

Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.

Persistent rear brake grabbing and over heating

As for the rear brake check to see if the emergence brake cable is free or binding, not releacing the brake calaper.
The engine rpm is not directly related to the brake other than the engine is trying harder to overcome the drag from the brake.
The passenger window is an obvious electrical short in the wireing harness at the door jam that is closed at a certain position of the door. Open the door and hold the switch on at the same time you move each wire individually in the harness. When you move the correct wire the window will move, hopefully.
As for the battery light, it could be any number of things. It is best to have it connected to a diagnostic tester to determine just what it is rather than chasing your tail.

Electrical problems

Regarding the short circuit: Open the trunk lid. Locate & examine the wiring that comes from the driver side of the trunk, and snakes up the driver side trunk lid support. Follow the wire harness down under the rear parcel shelf; untape the wiring harness. You are prob going to find some broken/shorted wires here. This is a very, very common problem.

Regarding the check engine light; sorry, without a DTC from Autozone, I cannot comment on a solution.
