2007 Chevy Tahoe power door locks

  • V8
  • 2WD
  • 49,500 MILES
Power door locks on both rear passenger doors won't unlock. All doors will lock with each front door switch and with the RKE, but only the 2 front doors and rear hatch will unlock. All fuses were good. Have to unlock the 2 rear passenger doors manually. The actuators should be ok since their locking with each command, but they won't unlock. Is there a relay located somewhere that could be failing?
Do you
have the same problem?
