Default Window Switches

Sorry. This may have been covered, but I've been searching for two days for just the right answer and haven't found it.

I'll describe my problem in a minute, but my suspicion is that it'* the door module. Please let me know if you agree.

The symptoms:

I don't know if it'* caused by the driver'* door or the passenger front door, but my doors unlock themselves randomly when the car is running.

That'* issue one.

Issue two is that my driver'* door window controls are jacked.

From the driver door controls:
Driver door rolls up and down just fine.
Pass front rolls up but not down.
Both rears roll down but not up.

Module or switches?

The reason I wonder if its the switches is, being a smoker, I'll occasionally have the window cracked and will inadvertently leave it cracked when I get out of the car, and I'm pretty sure there has been a least a LITTLE rain that'* gotten in there. This could possibly be a lot of the problem with the unlocking problem, but I can't pin down which side'* doing it since it'* so random. For instance, it hasn't happened in weeks, that I noticed, but when it does, sometimes its several dozen times over the course of an hour.

REALLY randomly and intermittently.

It is a lot easier to remove the switch assembly to clean it, than it is to pull the door panel and replace the module, so I'd suggest that you start there.
