    I can hear a click when I push the unlock button. Did I mention they do lock with the switch and the remote. If you think it's still the acuator, how do I replace it?

Sounds like the actuator is gone out of both back doors if you can hear a click when you push the unlock button. If you can't hear a click you might want to check the fuse before looking for a broken connection in your wires.

Since the driver's door gets the most use, and all circuits run through the master switch, check driver's door first and check the wiring at the hinge area for breaks.

Lock/unlock motor may be failing. Remove the door panel and remove the connector from the lock motor. Check the dc voltage at the connector while pressing the lock switch. If you see battery voltage, replace the motor. If the voltage is low, inspect the wiring.

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.
