Resolved Question:

I have a 2001 Ford Escape. The hatch door will not open with the automatic key and it does not have a manual key option. Is there any other place located in the suv that I can do it manually?

Chris,   I don't have any knowledge of it being removed. And I have not done so. What else can I do to help to get my answer? By the way, Where is it located?
