Probably a issue with your actuator... there is a recall due to the "latching system does not meet the inertia load requirement" might want to check with the dealership to see if your vehicle is with this group, hope this helps :)

I had the same problem on my 2002 Escape. Ended up taking it to the dealer and they replaced the Lift Gate Lock Actuator - cost us about $310 (parts and labor). Part #1C3F-18C815-AB
