If its a problem that the rear door handle is stuck in the upper position, then you need to use a screwdriver to pull the handle down , then use wd40 and spray up into the handle mechanism. Its common that handles stick, due to road dirt wafting up there as you drive along.
If this is not the case , and its due to the lock mechanism itself, then you will have to get into the rear compartment and remove the door trim pad, then pull the plastic protection away and get access to the lock mechanism. Check that a lock rod has not broken or fallen off, try to lift the unlock rod and see if the door opens, in which case you can adjust the rod and that should do the trick, it maybe that you need a new mechanism, they can fail.
Hope this helps

The rear doors will not lock.

May not be a solution, but do you have keyless entry? If so and you have the fob in your pocket, pulling the handle will open the door and should disable the alarm. If no keyless entry, check the child locks on the rear doors to be sure they are off. Also check the fuses for the door locks to be sure they are not blown, there may be more than one. Finally, do you have to press "lock" twice to lock all doors?

If you had someone to help you, when you try to open it get them to pull on the door, if it opens you need to spray it good with WD-40. But you probably need to have it replaced.
