I'd take apart the driver's door and fix the handle or actuator rod or latch assembly (the only three things that can go wrong), and then see if the issue goes away - and if not, then pull the fuse. Sounds like a beater of a car anyway, and if someone isn't going to repair a door handle, I doubt they are going to be worried about maintaining the electric locks...
I don't mean to sound rude at all, but that would be the simplest two things to do.
