Default 2004 Ford Ranger Mechanical Door Locks Not Working

Hello all, I'm the new owner of a 2004 Ford Ranger. It's a great little truck. My truck is a 2004 Ranger XLT that was used for county survey work. The door locks are mechanical. It seems that the mechanical lock lever on the top rear corner of the door isn't catching properly. The door won't lock. I can push it down but the door can still be opened from the outside. I tested the mechanical latch and there are no issues. The lock lever will pop up on its own after a while of driving after I push it down. I think that the connection on the inside is either disconnected or broken. Has anyone else had any experience working with mechanical door locks on 2004 Ford Rangers? Also, these are purely mechanical door locks so no electronics to worry about.
My first car was a 2002 VW Jetta. I loved that car but I had to sell it because it was too pricey to maintain, so my dad suggested I get a Ford Ranger pickup. I love my Ranger but I miss my Jetta.
