Ok, so I have searched and found no answers.

Here is my problem:
The windows roll down when I leave the car, and take the key with me. If I leave the key in the car, the windows stay up and all is well, minus the fact that I can't lock the car (because the keys inside). But if I take the key out of the ignition and open the drivers door, all the windows roll-down, leaving me with a problem for theft and weather inside my car. And sometimes, the windows don't go down when I take the key out... just when I come back to my unlocked car and open the drivers door. It makes no sense. Also, I think it has effected my locks, because when I press lock on the key, it locks (there is a buzz or whine) and then decides it doesn't want to be locked.

Does anybody have a clue what is wrong with the car?

Don't know if it will fix the door lock buzzing you described, but, it will fix the windows rolling down and the doors unlocking on their own. Don't listen to guy in the allexperts link posted by Muz. That guy says first check the key, it's not going to be the key, they swap out the FZV antenna amp, it's got going to be that either and then replace the GM5 module, yeah, that's not it either. It's the driver's side door lock actuator.

Sounds like you know what you're on about, I just googled it cause I had a bit of spare time on hand...
