    The rear doors only have motors in them so there's nothing that can operate the rest of the doors

    Only the front 2 doors of a MK3 at least will let you lock/ unlock them all

    Is the rear door locking with the rest?
    If not you may have broken wires where they go from the b-pillar into the rear door.

    trust me on my 05 plate 5 door astra has soon as i open the rear passenger door it opens all the doors, i am not sure if it locks because as soon as i open the door it opens all the other door's but it sounds like it is locking when you press the key fob

    You've not made it clear to me what you are doing. May I be so bold as to ask whether you are opening the rear door from within the vehicle or outside of the vehicle? If you're sat inside and exiting then yes I would expect what you are stating to happen. If your outside having locked the car then no it shouldn't happen. There is no barrel on the door so key entry isn't possible.
    The doors will all unlock upon opening a door from the inside as a safety feature, to disable the rear doors opening use the kiddy lock feature.
