No the rear door latch is not electric....but does have a electric lock which is fuse 17 in the inside fuse panel....not the one under the hood. The rear lift glass is controlled by electric and is in the same circuit fuse 17. Good Luck

You will need to remove the panel from the inside of the rear door and then you will have access to the latch and assemblies in side the rear hatch.

SOURCE: rear door lactch will not open but other doors do

I have the same issue on my 2002 Escape. I hear the cylinder motors engaging on the doors but not the liftgate so all I can assume is the wiring loom on the passenger side upper corner of the liftgate needs attention. That is where the wiring is for the door motor that releases the window and gate. I will post again after I solve this. 6/28/2009

SOURCE: 2000 Ford expedition. Rear door latch will not release when unloc

The good ol' Ford door lock mechanisms get tired after a while and need replacing.
This is a pretty common occurence as the Fords get older. Best to open the panels and replace before you can't get it open at all.

I HAVE A 2009 FORD ESCAPE AND THE REAR HATCH WILL NOT OPEN FUSE IS GOOD. PLEASE HELP ME.


You need a latch assembly. Common problem. Open the hatch glass. Then try and lift up and push forward the plastic door panel around the spot where the glass closes into the hatch. It should give you enough room to see the latch assembly inside. Use a flashlight to look for the latch which is in the center bottom of the hatch. There is a white plastic lever. Push or pull on the lever and the door should open. The latch has a electric actuator that goes bad. Only replaced as a latch assembly.

2008 suburban Stuck Lift Gate Lock


I have a 2008 Suburban with the power liftgate disabled. I have had the power latch stop working, and the BCM report that the rear access open when it is closed (both gate and glass). Somehow the liftgate module thinks the gate is open, so I cannot open the gate at all, and the latch and rear wiper will not work. To reset the control module I pulled the liftgate fuse (#20) in the instrument panel fuse box, turned the car on, off, reinstalled fuse, turned car on, unlocked doors using drivers side switch, and the power latch will function again - at least for a while.

My 2004 Ford Escape LiftGate Latch won't latch... when I close it, it doesn't seem to want to grab... any solutions?


check the latch and see if it has been tripped closed some how.look at the front doors and see what a open latch looks like and try to unlatch the rear one by holding the open lever down and trying to move the latch jaws open with your fingers or screwdriver.then spray with some oil.
