#1101 of 2995 Daytime headlight Module
Apr 02, 2005 (8:47 am)
Installed this Ford part in my 2002 Ranger XLT. It combines both daylight headlights (at reduced power) and automatic headlights when it gets dark. When working, you never need to turn on the headlight switch.
After a year or so it stopped working as designed. The light sensor is still working as I can hear a relay click when going from light to dark and vice-a-versa. But nothing happens to the headlights if the switch is off. If the switch is on 'park', the parking lights are on in the day and reduced power headlights go on automatically at night. When the switch is on 'headlights', reduced power lights are on during the day, and full power lights go on at night.
I could leave the switch always on except that the lights would not switch off when ignition is turned off.
Hoping for a solution to restore the function of this useful device. Right now it's useless.

I have a '94 ford ranger and a few problems. The truck vibrates as soon as you turn the key and the whole time its riding and going up hills it will only reach a whopping speed of 45 mph. Can someone tell me what the problem is and what it needs?

I'll throw out some answers for this and the next 2 posts also....
I don't think they changed much of anything in the last few years. The 4L are OHC motors. My guess would be that a 2003 would fit a 2004. There hasn't been much change to body, options, or motors.
But why not call this 'JBA' company and ask this question of them. They should know better than anyone.

With something as unique as what you have, I wouldn't think much of anybody would have any experience messing with it.
Buy a new one. Do an internet search for the company that made it and see if they have manuals and/or parts.
Call the company directly and talk to someone. (Yea, bet it's from China!!!!!)

Not much info to go on here....
Is it 'missing'?
If so, the first thing I would suggest is new plug and plug wires.
This sounds like a vehicle that hasn't had much maintenance. Come on, tell the truth.
Change the fuel filter. It might be clogged up badly.
If the 'Check Engine' light is on, you need to have the codes pulled and diagnoised...

Do you have mud tires?? What size engine is the Dodge cause believe me I hate Dodge trucks!! And how deep is the mud cause my guess is that you will definitely get stuck!! Is your truck manual or auto? As one Ford lover to another--the dodge will win--sorry!! I have seen it done!! Just let me know how that works out!!
#1108 of 2995 90 Ranger - shuts down =(
Apr 03, 2005 (3:55 pm)
Hi everyone, new to this forum
I've recently taken ownership of a 1990 Ranger. This truck sat for a number of years and I've gotten it back to good working condition. I've even taken it on an 8 hour trip and it went smoothly.
Recently this came up - drive it for 10 minutes or so, enough to get it warm, and all the sudden I can't get any engine power. If I lightly press the pedal the engine still runs but feels like it's bogging down, have to pull over. Let it sit for 10 minutes, it will run for 5, then does it again. Check engine light does Not come on.
Engine starts and idles fine. Runs good until this happens.
I've replace the following - for this problem and general maintenance:
Fuel pump, fuel filter, 1 ignition coil (top), spark plugs and wires, air filter and new muffler.
Any input would be appreciated!

his dodge is big has a V6 engine. Mine of course isn't. I have great snow tires on right now. But I have weight in the back to help on the roads. I was gonna take out the weight but someone told me that helped in mudding..... Oh boy I gotta get out of this bet because I don't want his dodge pulling my ford....

hi, i have been trying to read these articles to find a solution to my problem,
i have a 99 ranger and every time it rains or gets moisture outside i have a belt that squeaks and my passenger door makes my dome light come on. (door ajar) but if it is beautiful outside or snowing i don't have the problem of either one. my dad tried everything on the squeaky belt but it only works for about a day or so. but after the rain go's away the door shuts fine and the belt is quiet. oh yeah my back window also leaks as well. if anyone has any ideas let me know please
