Changing Manual Doors to Autmatic

i have a cobalt ls 08 all manual everything (doors locks mirrors). i was wondering if there is a chance i can change it to automatic interior.

i found someone i know selling me all his 4 doors for 100 so im ok with the price. is there anything other than the replacement doors do i need for this process?

i was thinking of taking his doors apart (because they are different colors) and laying all the parts on my piece. anything i should know before attempting this?

he said he would give me the doors with the wire sticking out of them which im pretty sure is something don't have given that my car is manual. only wire i have out of my door is probably the speaker.

kinda new to all this so all help is appreciated.

You will need the BCM and RCDLR for locks to work. Big project but doable.

BCM, Body Control Module it locks and unlocks the doors when it receives the command signal from the door switch or shifting lever.

RCDLR is the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver that receives the remote FOB signals and transmits it to the BCM to lock and unlock the doors.

You will also need the wiring harnesses for these. Big job!

Power window is pretty much stand alone though
