Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
The breaker is heating and opening because of high current draw on the circuit.
If the breaker is opening without any input then there is a short to ground on the circuit between the breaker and window/lock switches.
If it only opens when in use then the problem could be wiring from the switch to whatever window is being opened, a mechanical issue with a window, or failed window motor. If it only opens when trying to open or lose a certain window then odds are that window motor has failed or there is a physical issue preventing the window from moving.

This happens when I am not using any of the windows door locks just driving down the road how do I test

The circuit between the breaker and switches is shorted to ground or the problem is in the switch then.
The wiring diagram appears to show fuses in the circuit rather than any breakers. Is the breaker location labeled 'power'?
