Default Buggy door locks

The door locks aren't working correctly and I would like to know what to replace. All of this is by hitting the lock all switch:
FD locks but if I hit it twice, it won't unlock with the key
FP locks, but not unlocks(switch or key)
RD unlocks but doesn't lock
RP is fine but occasionally doesn't unlock

I've been fortunate enough that the three times my driver door wouldn't unlock, I forgot to lock my R driver.

Any help is appreciated.

Also, what are the odds that my car is set up for keyless-entry but the fob was not forwarded to me?

I will be watching this one as well, as my drivers door has this issue as well.

It locks fine, and once locked, will work fine with the key. If you try and unlock it with the power locks, and it is not already unlocked, it no longer unlocks with the key at all. You have to relock it with the power locks, then you can open it.

Wonder if you have a bad drivers door control module.

it just sounds like your solenoids are getting weak, thats what happens as they get old. ive never taken apart your specific car but take the door panel off and see if you can lube the mechanism. if not you probably have to replace them. the one that wont do anything with the key you probably have to take the inner panel off and watch what happens when you turn the key maybe the linkage fell off the key barrel.
i wouldnt get jy ones either because most of the older cars end up like yours

I believe they are just weak, sometimes they work, sometimes not.
