In the 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, there is a switch that can burn out, or the wiring to it could be broken on the driver's side.

One can go to a salvage yard and get another switch/button to see if it resolves the problem.

If not, a broken wire is likely the cause.

Power door locks on both doors dont work

The most likely cause of that concern would be a broken power or ground wire in the umbilical between the body and the driver's door. The second most likely cause would be a defective master (driver's) window control switch.

Why dont my power locks work

Generally, if it is both locks, it can be traced back to something common to both, usually a fuse. Check the fuse for the locks and replace if faulty.

My oldsmobile ciera has eletric window but only the drivers window comes down what will I have to buy or is it a problem with a security line called dog security

with it being a 1988 model with what I am guessing is factory electric window regulators it is probably burned up motors or locked up because of faulty or leaky seals in the door or on the electric motor itself. with a vehicle of this age the switches may also need to be replaced if they are found to be faulty.
I know nothing about the security system though. sorry.
hope this helps.
