Help Needed w/door lock problem

1988 chevy celebrity, 4-door. The door locks on both front doors have failed. Doors won't close and neither the elec. nor manual locks will work. I'm on disability and can't afford a costly repair. Is there any way i can disable the electic locks and just use manual? Any ideas please. Thanks, in advance, for any help.

i take it the doors are open right now. are they unlocked or in the locked position.

If the doors are open and won't close, then the latch is in the position it should be in while shut. take a screwdriver and hold the handle of the door open and push the latch to the open position.

Any other questions just give a holler back.

Not sure of the actual problem. Are the doors stuck open? Won't latch shut? Electric locks won't work?

Need more description to help and provide a solution as mentioned by others.
