More Locking Problems

It started with the tailgate not unlocking.  I took the truck to the dealer and they said they are going the order the entire mechanism for the tailgate, handle rods etc.  Now when I try to lock the truck, only the front doors lock, the back doors and the tailgate will not lock.  The only way I can get the back doors to lock is to open them before I click the remote and push the lock buttons down and click the remote to lock the front doors and set the alarm.  The tailgate does not lock at all now. 

Any ideas?
Sounds like software at this point ...

Did they bother to flash the FOB's  or even look for updates?
