Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.

On the Windows: Most likely, the driver door master switch assembly is the problem. Over time, the contacts under the switches (that transfer the power) wear out and no longer touch each other.

On the dome light: I would be inclined to think that the ground circuit for the domelight is suspect. This can be at the domelight itself, or at the individual switches on the door pillars

On the AC cutting out: I would initially suspects either an over-charge of an under-charge would be causing this.

We can look deeper into each issue if you desire.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.

AN undercharge is where some freon leaked out. An overcharge is where the freon leaked out and somebody just added some without following the proper fill procedures (in other words, it is too full). There are protection circuits that shut the AC down when it is too low on refrigerant, and when it is overfull.

You are very welcome. Glad to help. If you need additional help on the windows or the other things, we can continue to diagnose. A positive rating would be greatly appreciated.
