Question about 1992 Ford Tempo
Rear door locks are locked permanently
Your Tempo is equipped with early child-proof rear door locks...(cannot open from the inside when locked) Open the doors from the outside and look near the door catch for a small switch that moves back and forth...if still labeled it should show "Lock...Unlock" marks...leave on unlock for normal opening from inside. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Rear Door will not Lock
After researching this problem, I suspect it is the door lock actuator located in each affected door. They can be purchased online. If you also suspect this and want to fix it yourself by removing the door panel and the old actuator, then installing the new actuator, test the locks, then install the door panel. Or for more detailed information, go to this website for a how to with pictures and written instructions. http://www.ford-trucks.com/user_gallery/displayalbum.php?&albumid=12198

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.
