#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

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.

We just got the truck back today. It purrs like a kitten now. Apparently it was some kind of air flow sensor gone bad. After $400+ for parts and repair work, the problem seems to be taken care of. Keeping in mind though that the $400 includes money spent on an a fuel pump we didn't need and two trips with the tow truck. The actual price for the repair itself was only about $180.

Clean the MAF sensor and see if that works. Electronic cleaner works well. If that does not work, replace it. You can do this yourself and save on labor cost.

I am looking for a response to this problem as well. The starter will not turn at all. Have you replaced your starter? I did with no luck. They also replaced some wiring and the nuetral switch. The truck ('99) has been back to Ford three times and they can't fix it.

I have a 1992 ranger. I just had a rebuilt motor installed and now I have other problems. The re builder installed a new starter solenoid because the truck would not start. After the installation the truck still does not start but can be jumped out at the solenoid, sounds like the ignition switch is shot. Then last night before I could change the ignition switch the headlights would not work but the cluster lights came on. I turned the high beams on they worked just fine until I tried to turn them off! The switch operated but he lights stayed on. I had to pull the fuse to get them off for the night. Since the ignition switch and the multifunction switch are in the same column could they have burned up together or do I have other problems? Please help!
