#2758 of 2995 ford ranger 1993 4x4 questionabout my truck
Mar 21, 2009 (8:50 am)
I have replaced the alternator the sylinoid, but when I got to start it. It just clicks, could it need a new battery I can jump start it and it will run good, once turned off I have to re-jump it to get it to run again. I love my little truck just bought it, and I want to keep it. Could someone please give me some advice on this problem.
#2759 of 2995 Ranger cutting out under load..no engine light
Mar 25, 2009 (12:48 pm)
Have an 02 ranger with the 3.0 v6 and it has started to cut out under load recently. We have done a complete tune up and it runs great other than the cutting out. It has 104,000 miles and this is the first problem I have had. It seems like the Governor is kicking in because it does not throw any codes or engine light. If I drive around under 3,000 rpm's it runs prefect. Some days it won't cut out at all..some days every time I get on the freeway it cuts out. Can anyone help or have any suggestions?

Sounds like you could have a bad battery...but did you clean your battery terminals. Also, if you have a volt meter, check the voltage at the battery when the engine is running. It should be about 13.6 volts DC to charge the battery properly.

you may need to replace the ground wire from the engine to the firewall sometimes they do go bad and will cause problems cutting out. i use to be a mechanic, worked on vehicles about 40 years and one person that taught me said never overlook the obvious! he said the problem could be right in front of you but hard to see. hope this helps some
#2762 of 2995 How To Access Cruise Control Switch 99 Ranger
Mar 26, 2009 (3:44 pm)
I need to replace the cruise control switch that is located on the right side of the steering wheel. I can see the two screws holding the switch in place. They are located under the steering wheel padded cover that covers the air bag and horn switch, but I cannot reach them. Does anyone know how to remove this cover? I don't see any visible screws or other fasteners.
#2763 of 2995 1990 Ford Ranger 4 cylnder will not start
May 23, 2009 (5:02 pm)
My ranger will go through the motions of starting, but it has no fire. I had one of the power packs checked and it was fine. Also I have no power going to my fuel pump. More specifically, I have no voltage on the safety switch on the passenger floor board. I think that my problem is either the ecc relay or the emc. My question is, where is the ecc relay? I found one relay behind the glove box, which I think is the fuel pump relay, but I am nor for sure. Can someone please tell which relay it is behind the glove box and where is the ecc relay so I can test to see if it supplying voltage to the ecc. Or if you have any other recommendation that will help me troubleshoot the problem, I would appreciate it.

i started it up and teaching my son how to drive, he killed it, went to start it and it would not turn over, i thought simple enough, the starter relay was bad, i got out and used a screwdriver to start it on the relay., went and bought a new relay and replaced it, still wont turn over, i thought it might be the clutch sensor, changed it, nothing, took apart the dash to get to steering wheel switch tested it, it is fine, is there a fuseable link somewhere im missing, run out of ideas here, driving me crazy. thanks in advance for the help.

My "Check Engine" like came on one day and has been on for at least a year now. When this light came on it did not seem to change the way the truck runs nor did it seem to effect in the gas mileage.
What could have caused this light to come on and what can I do about it short of taking it to a repair shop? I'd prefer to fix it myself for obvious reasons if at all possible.
I like to work on such things myself (to save the trouble and $) and would appreciate hearing back from some of you about this. Thanks a million.
