Door Lock Problems

I am the new owner of a 2003 Mini with 86,000 miles. When I first bought the mini, only the driver door and the rear hatch locks were responsive to the Lock/Unlock buttons on the key. I had to lock and unlock the passenger door by hand. While looking for the cause of the problem, I checked all of the fuses and they are fine. But, now the driver door will only unlock using the key button (I have to lock the driver door with the key from the outside) and the rear hatch door won't lock at all. I'm not aware of a way to lock the rear hatch door by hand. The lock/unlock toggles under the radio won't control any of the doors either but the windows work fine.

At first, I thought the problem was the passenger door actuators since the passenger door didn't work but the driver and the rear hatch door did. Now, I am beginning to think it is the entire central locking system. I would like to fix this ASAP since I can't fully lock my vehicle.

Any suggestions?
