OH GOD, I hate this. You can get new Astro door lock motors on Ebay for $30.
The interior of your rear door (or probably all of them for that matter) are probably covered in a carpet like cover. There are phillips screws hidden in the fabric. If you can get (when you get) the cover off, you can reach in and manually trip the door open rod with your hand.
Astro door lock/unlock motors are junk. That is the only thing that plagues me with my Astro.
Yes, you have to climb and crawl and get the inside cover off. If you think that is fun, try the side sliding door sometime when it will not unlock. Very little room to work to remove that panel.
You will get there and it get's better.
