I have a 2008 Ford Escape. My wife complains that no one in the back seat can get out of the car unless she unlocks all the doors with the power switch first. The child safety locks are not engaged. The lock stem is easily visible, and can be pulled up by hand for each door.
Is unlocking the doors by hand a bad thing for the power locks? Will it cause undue damage to the system and make it fail any faster than using the switch would normally?
