#33 of 72 98 ford ranger abs light and brake warning light
Jun 18, 2006 (6:32 pm)
I need some help. Today I changed brakes on a 98 ford ranger and after I was finished the abs light and brake warning lights came on. How do I make them go off? The truck drives fine and the brakes work fine but I need to turn the lights off. Can anyone help?

Oh, just about as smart as posting this exact same question in 5 different areas. One of them even twice.

Here's my two cents, that I posted on another Ranger discussion regarding this question.
There are a million variables associated with making a used car purchase decision. You've given two-age and mileage.
To offer a more informed opinion, knowing such things as price, maintenence/maintenence records, type of driving done by the owner, was it a northern or Arizona car, 4 cylinder vs. 6, etc. would help. For instance, given the mileage and age alone without knowing anything else, I would say not to buy it. However, if the truck was driven primarily cross country through the southwest, meticulously maintained, and going for $500, I might still question it because of the low price makes it look like the owner is trying to get rid of it fast.
Thus, not only do you have to consider many variables, but also how much weight to give each variable-high mileage might not necessarily be bad versus a truck with 30k miles that was driven only in stop and go traffic and only for 5 miles at a time even though both trucks are the same age.

Hey Rangerman how much did it cost for a new tranny? I have the exact same truck
but with 170k miles. My 99 ranger was actually a really good truck my dad bought
it new and handed it down to me the same clutch and same tranny lasted 170k
miles. However now either my clutch or tranny has blown and its being looked at.
I want to get all the price checks i can on a new tranny for a 99 for ranger so
i dont get ripped off.

hey haha i actually dont have the ranger anymore but anyhoo i paid about 1400 at a place called AAMCO, which is a rip off for any manual tranny, so I think anything over a grand is a rip. there is a place here in CA where i live called American Gear, which i now know of, that would have done the entire thing for about 800, including labor. Hope this helps!

Hello im looking at a ranger right now for a new vehicle. I drive a saturn 98 sl2. Now the truck im looking at right now is a v6, 94, nice condition, 4x4 and owner says it runs nice. I forget how many miles are on it. Now there are minor problems. The hub is screwed up because I guess they forgot to hit a switch for the 4x4 before running it and now it makes noises when ever running in 4x4. Is this fix inexpensive? Also its for $1500 for the truck which is nice. Please need a reply.
