#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.

Most auto parts houses, Autozone, etc, will read out codes and tell you the general info for the code.
They do this in support of selling you parts to fix it.

My 2000 2.5L starts good and runs great until it warms up. Once warmed up it begains to backfire and has no power under load. Sometimes if I feather the trottle off the start (standard tranny) it goes away till the RPM's drop. then it goes back to backfiring and running like crap. Changed the fuel filter, helped for a while, then the plugs, no help. Air filter new but cant get her to run right. Any ideas?.......Jim

I can not lock/unlock my passenger side car door with a key anymore. I opened up the door panel and found that the lock tumbler was not attached to anything and a long metal piece with a plastic and metal clip attached to it fell down. What I need to know is how to reinstall the metal piece so that I can lock/unlock my door from the outside again?

Your best bet would be to stop by your local Ford dealer and talk to the "Parts Department". They can look it up on their computer and show you a picture of what you need and tell you how to do it. They can also sell you the parts you may need. Good luck on that. My drivers side lock is giving me trouble.....takes me a couple of minutes to get it unlocked.....people think I'm trying to steal my own truck....I have to wiggle and jiggle the key just right to get it unlocked.

Open up the door on the other side and look at the linkage there. It should be a mirror image.
It probably just came loose, or the clip on the end broke.
