The child safe locks on the rear doors of my 2nd Ford Expedition activate through normal door operation. They are activated by using the automatic door locks as well as normal interior door handle use. I have owned two Expedition and this has occurred on each vehicle ( a 1997 xly Expedition as well as a 2001 eddie bauer edition). I am aware of the same occurrence on my brothers Ford excursion so this obviously is not a single issue but a engineering failure. This action locks people unintentionally in the back seats of the vehicle without notice or easy correction since you can't reach the exterior handle from inside the vehicle due to limited window opening height. In the case of an accident a person would be likely be locked in unable to escape the vehicle. Other occupants would likely not be aware of the situation and thus possibly find necessary action unnecessary. A accident waiting to happen .
