04 Escape doors won't stay unlocked
I bought this Escape for a bush truck and its in great shape outside of a leak in the head gasket and this.
The guy I bought it from said something about the doors just randomly locking on him and now after a few weeks of using it, this just happened to me.
I found it weird there was no remote door unlocker for the vehicle but there isn't and no key slot on the hatch so this problem is a pain.
Whatever caused this also seemed to drain the battery. Makes me think a short in the wiring but maybe someone else has had this issue and knows a good place to start looking to fix this.
I push the unlock button and they unlock but immediately re-lock . I'm thinking the button itself may be the problem.
Guess I should have asked him what he did to stop it.
Now I drive it a bit and everything seems fine again.
