Re: 2001 Ford Escape rear doors
If you mean the latches do not work inside the vehicle check on the rear door where the latch is there should be a slider to switch it on and off. If you mean the locks that operate while driving the vehicle they are a safety feature that you cannot turn off.

The Child Protection Door Locks (Rear Doors) are located inside the rear edge of the door. Insert the tip of the ignition key or similar flat-bladed object into the lock and rotate approximately one-quarter turn to the LOCK or UNLOCK position (as indicated by the stamped icons). WARNING!
Avoid trapping anyone in a vehicle in a collision.
Remember that the rear doors can only be opened
from the outside when the Child Protection Door
Locks are engaged.
I don't think its a common problem. Things can just happen.
Is it a rear door? Child locks activated and maybe the plastic clip on the outside handle broke.
Or for whatever door, the latch could be faulty. They are pretty much levers and latches and over time with lots of use parts get worn and rounded so after while they wont work.
Is the child safety lock on? If you can open it from the outside but not on the inside, this is most likely the problem. There is a tiny dial on the inside of the door, where the door connects with the vehicle. Turn child safety latch off.
