Probably the lock is a security add on to keep vandals out of the buses while parked, but needs to be unlocked while driven so (in case of emergency) door can be quickly opened and someone can access the bus from the outside to assist.

Re: Just purchased bus, now it won't start.

the rear window on my bus had both a switch on a lock that was supposed to be unlocked while the bus was in service, and another switch on the handle to open it which was supposed to be closed all the time.. the way i fixed this one after some wire testing, was to have all the wires unhooked... that suprised me, as i expected one needed grounded, and two of the others connected together like the side door.

Oh, I see, the back door needs to be unlocked, so people can come to the rescue of a crashed/overturned bus. Makes sense.
