#1524 of 2986 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4 Problem
Aug 07, 2005 (5:57 am)
I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4. I swithced it to four wheel drive yesterday to drive up a set of ramps to change the oil. After I drove off the ramps I tried to put it into 2wd again. I turned the switch on the dash to 2wd but it refused to shift out of four wheel drive. I have tried everything I can think of.
Has anyone else had this problem or can you give me some advice.

I have a 99 Ranger XLT extended cab also. A few months back, my speedometer had same problem. After few phone calls at the FORD dealership, I found that there are two sensors that control speedometer. One is located on the Transmission and the second one is on the rear end. If your ABS light is on since your problem began, you have to replace the one on rear end. If it's just the Speedometer, it's the sensor on the Transmission. The cost from a FORD dealer is about $ 28.00 in small town in Alabama. Replacement is very easy, there is only one bolt holding it down. Once the bolt is loose and removed, you have to wiggle it little to get it out. Good Luck.

#1528 of 2986 Turn signals work normally only with no other lights activated

Turn signals work normally only with no other lights activated
Also, no reverse lights come on when in reverse. This is a 2000 Ranger w/34000 miles. The emergency flashers work at all times. I replaced the rear bulbs and checked all the fuses. So the turn signals work fine until I step on the brakes or turn on the parking or headlights. This is confusing.
Has anyone seen this before? Thanks for any help.
#1529 of 2986 1994 Ranger 4.0 4x4 problem
Aug 08, 2005 (5:45 am)
The other day I stopped to fill up and when I restarted the 4x4 light came on the dash 4x4 button as well as the dash message panel. So I shut the truck off and restarted and the lights were out. The next day, after driving then turning the truck off and restarting the lights are now back on - along with the Low Range lights. They will no longer go out when the truck is restarted and the truck is certainly not in four wheel drive, the lights just say that it is, however in this condition, I can't turn the lights out or actually engage four wheel drive. If anyone has any information on this I would really appreciate it.

My 87 ranger is acting exactly like yours did minus the engine light. Did you ever find out what was wrong with yours.
#1531 of 2986 1999 Ford Ranger problems
Aug 09, 2005 (10:44 am)
My 1999 Ranger is having transmission problems. When I start the truck the ABS light comes on. When I put the truck in Drive and then get a few hundred feet up the driveway the Check engine light comes on and the Overdrive off (O/D off) light starts flashing. When this occurs the transmission starts acting funny as if it doesn't know what gear it wants to go into. Anybody have any ideas?

WD-40 in the switch area will solve the problem for years, it did in my case anyway
