    2000 Escalade.. HAVING issues with rear doors not opening

    Hi,
    I bought my car used a few years back. I noticed right away the only key I was given DID NOT fit in the back rear key opening. I asked the dealer and they did not have a key to fit it.

    I CAN use the automatic unlock/lock buttons on the key ring and they USUALLY open the back door. Also the inside unlock/lock buttons usually open it too.

    However, some times the buttons WONT unlock the doors at all. And not having a key that fits it, I get left with no access to the back.

    Can anyone tell me why it does this? I dont know anything about cars, but if I could fix this problem. Also do you think I can BUY a key that will fit the back? I got spare keys made for the ignition and I had to go through a cadillac dealership to have them made. Would they carry the rear key?


    thanks

    the door lock actuator is going bad in the hatch that is why you can unlock it sometimes and sometimes you can't
