I have just recently bought a 1999 Ford Ranger and it ran great for 2 weeks now my abs light is on I have to manually switch gears until it takes the higher gears. My wipers go on and off for no reason and my radio changes from cd to radio on its own. Does anyone out there have these same problems or a possible soulution for my problems. This is the only vehicle I have so I can use any advice.

I have a 99 ford ranger and the wipers go off for no reason and my radio changes from cd to radio then back for no reason. My over head light will not go out and I'm very disappointed in this vehicle. Have you found any way to fix this with out spending more money than the truck is worth????!!!!!!

Get some electronic cleaner spray and clean the MAF sensor. Locate the sensor and spray it real good.

Haven't been here in a while and just wanted to know how your truck was doing. Hope everything is well. I know how it is when your vehicle is not running correctly.

#1513 of 2991 1998 Ford Ranger will not start
Aug 03, 2005 (5:22 pm)
I have a 1998 Ford Ranger with a five speed manual transmission. About once a month, it will not start. The fuel pump runs for a few seconds when I turn on the switch and the fuel pump seems to be working properly.
When I pull one of the spark plug wires from the distribute there is no arc.
If I push the trunk and pop the clutch, it starts and I will not have any more problems for several weeks.
Does anyone have any ideas about what is causing this?

ABS - really need to have the codes pulled for this one. It could be the sensor that is in the read differential housing is bad. I would have the code checked, but if you want to throw a part at it......
Mid 90's Rangers are known for bad 'multi-function switch'. This is the turn signal, high beam, etc switch in the column.
Radio - who knows. The radio is pretty self contained, so it should be in the radio...

Interior light - Well known problem with Rangers. The switch is inside the door, on the inside of the outside door handle. This switch is failed or just dirty. You need to remove the door panel and trace the wiring to the switch. The switch can be cleaned with Electrical cleaner in come cases, sometimes it needs replaced.

There is a small voltage regulator on the back of your instrument cluster, it sounds as if it has gone bad. Plugs in like a ninevolt battery
