    Hmmm, strange they are both doing it. Loose connection somewhere on the loom, severed wire or faulty door actuators would be my first guesses. Cant advise further, sorry.

    they may have just adjusted the door catch plates.. ( the yellow plated clips that the door latches onto).. that would put the warning out..

    The other ( more expensive option) is to have to change both rear door locks as the sensor is built into them...about £140 a side...
