Do both rear windows operate? Does door ajar indicator on dash illuminate when either rear door is opened?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the windows work and not sure about door ajar light cant check it
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 1 year ago.

The door locks and windows operate through modules in each door. Since the windows operate, there is communication to these modules. The problem then is going to be in the door lock actuators in each of the rear doors. The actuator is located at the door latch at the rear edge of the door. Remove the door panel for access.

What might be the easiest way to do that
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 1 year ago.

First manually unlock the doors using the lever inside the car. Open the door then remove panel.

1. Remove the inside door handle bezel. Refer to Door Inside Handle Bezel Replacement

2. Use a thin tool to pry out the retainers (3) around the outside edges of the door trim panel (1).

3. Remove the door trim panel by pulling out at the bottom of the panel and lifting up.
