2 doors won't lock by the remote or the interior lock switch

I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee (I know it's obvious because I posted here) The front passanger door and the rear driver side door will only lock and unlock manually. The remote and the interior lock switch work on the other two doors. The dealership wants to charge some crazy price to fix the door ( $500+) and I know it's most likely a simple fix. I don't want to go through the dealership for the part if I don't have to. So here is the question. What is the part called? That way I can look it up and purchase it online. Thank you in advance!

door lock actuator. they are not cheap, over $100 a piece IIRC. all of mine were bad when i got my jeep. i went to the junkyard and used a drill battery to test them. i think i probably tested a couple dozen until i found 4 good ones. and heres another tip, you can use an actuator from a rear door for the front door too, you just have to swap over the little piece that goes to the key lock cylinder and cut off the little child latch thing.

Okay. Thank you for your help. I've had things stolen from my car twice because my passangers forgot to hand lock my doors even though I told them to. I am ready to get this fixed...
