Hello. Most of the time the door lock actuator is the cause of this problem. You may also have a problem with the rods that come from the door lock actuator to your door lock. To fix this issue the door panel needs to be removed and all of these things need to be verified to determine the exact reason the right rear door won’t lock. This should be done by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
