Rear pistons need to be rotated anti clockwise when pushed in.
There is a special tool to do this with, but you could try rotating it with a vice when pushing them in.
This is a verry common procedure for cars with rear disk breaks.
Otherwise the handbrake would not work it they could push themselves in.

There is a tool available from most auto parts supply outlets, it is a plate that has a compression bolt through it, you slide the plate into the caliper, and tighten the bolt against the piston, then keep turning until the piston is all the way in. These are relatively inexpensive and good to have for next time.
hope this helps.

Try removing the battery for half an hour or so and then reconnecting (check you have all your radio codes etc before you do this).
