Question window and central locking and headlight pop issues

Hi guys

I just bought a 1997 Ferrari GTA456. Please share info on how (if even possible) to fix the following problems:
1. window does not drop down when door is opened, in order for door to close.
2. central door locking can't work, and doors cannot be locked even manually. Is there a 'stop-gap' measure of 'deactivating' the central door locking to enable doors to lock individually, manually?
3. Headlight can't pop up. After manually turning the knob below the bonnet, it works, but for a while only, and then it starts to 'wink'.

I suspect for the door locks and window concern you will need to address the latch mechanism in the Driver's door. Without checking the headlight circuit, I'm not sure exactly what need to be addressed but I would lean towards a motor replacement or rebuild.
