The passenger side rear door lock is stuck in the unlock position. We cannot automatically or manually lock the door. All of the other locks are fine. Can this be fixed at home

    The previous answer is correct, you will probably be able to fix it yourself, may be as simple as a $2 plastic clip on the linkage that has failed.The inner door trim panel will have to be removed to inspect the door locking mechanism and linkages to see what the problem is. Removing the door trim may be tricky and easy to damage trim that is expensive to replace if damaged! You would need illustrated instructions so as not to damage the trim. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
