The rear door locks and front passenger side door locks are controlled by the same circuit from the door lock module. If the passenger side locks and unlocks from the drivers door but the two rear do not then you most likely need new lock actuators in the back doors replaced. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to inspect your car door locking mechanisms.
