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 2995 1994 Ranger 4.0 4x4 problem
Aug 08, 2005 (4:45 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 2995 1999 Ford Ranger problems
Aug 09, 2005 (9:44 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

Mass Air Flow sensor. It is located somewhere after the air filter in the air intake path. I have a 97 and it is just after the air filter. There are a couple wires running to it. Your best bet is to spend about 12 to 15 dollars and buy a Haynes or Chilton manual for your year model truck. It will tell you everything.

Do you have the air conditioning running when this happens?

The sensor for ABS in the rear differential causes such symptoms.
If you just want to throw parts at the problem without have the codes checked, which you said are being set, them replace this sensor. It's pretty easy to replace.
