Question 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.

Very weird.

I think the 02 and the 04 Escapes are the same. May be the GEM.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
