Could be a shorted out or damaged power door lock module. I had a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that had corrosion on the contacts of the module that when cleaned worked fine. Before that, the power door locks would lock the doors inexplicably.

For the cruise, I would check the fuse first.

Also, parts are probably still available for your car since it was made 8 years ago, which falls under the 10 year limit.

Chev impala sometimes while driving the auto. door locks start clicking for a couple of times then stop. what, s going on?.

Most times it is corrosion at the plug on the BCM(body control module). A couple times is was the BCM. A couple times the door lock switch, but they were really loose. The springs broke down and let make contact to unlock. The reason it locks is the BCM see the car is moving and locks them.

My cruise control on my Chevy 2002 Impala will not work. Is it a fuse problem or other?

Click on the link, part of cruise control circuit, you can see the fuses. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite to check voltage on fuse circuit, goes hot with key on.
Make sure the brake lites work?
Check applicable trouble codes relating to cruise control. There are other possible issues.

Blinker, cruise issues...electrical?

The problem is caused by the emergency flasher unit. This is a common problem and you can find a few youtube demos on replacing it. I did it in about 30 mins. I don't remember the cost but it was stocked at my local chevy dealership.
good luck.
