Hello

I would imagine that someone who had the car before you have made some modifications to the wiring to make the car usable as a fault probably exists in the BSM. Faults like these can make the car uneconomical to repair and a workaround is made.

My guess is that lock mechanism is not actually locking and remaining unlocked. The moment one door is opened all of the doors will unlock.
It could be a wiring problem or a mechanical problem with the lock.
Try locking the car with the central locking fob and listen to the rear door lock. See if it is actuating or not.
Is the door closing properly? Could there be something jamming the door or lock?
