Power locks could be a fault with the control unit, lock actuator, a blown fuse or a wiring problem.

The slow window movement could be due to a weak motor or the runchannels are bad restricting movement. With windows down, spray some silicone lubricants or tire restorer ( or equivalent but DO NOT use WD40 or any oil based sprays). Move the glass up and down a few times and retest.

The fuses are all good how do I test the control unit?

Is system equipped with keyless entry?
When driver's door lock switch is activated, is there any indication of any movements or noises?

Remove left door panel. Using a DVOM, perform power door lock unit input tests. See Fig. 5. If all input test results are okay, inspect connector and terminals for damage and proper fit. If connector is okay and power door lock still malfunctions, replace power door lock control unit.
