#189 of 259 1999 Ford Ranger Dome light, Windows, Wipers and 4X4 Switch
Jan 18, 2010 (8:21 pm)
I had a issue with the wipers first of not coming on and then the dome light would not come on and then the Windows would not roll down and the 4X4 Switch will not engage the 4X4. None of them have power to them. I used to start the truck and let it run for 15 minutes with the heater going and it seemed like it would work to get them going after the truck got 100 degrees inside. It acted like it had moisture on everything then yesterday I went out and ran the truck for a half hour to get them to work and hopefully dry everythying out but they will not work at all now. Does anyone know what the issue might be?

i have a 98 3L 2wd i hoped in my truck recently and turned my park lights all the way on and then i had no dash lights no park lights but i had headlights. i tracked down the fuse to the powerbox under the hood i replaced the fuse it blew right away i put another in it took around a minute to blow so i got under the truck tracing the wireing wiggling it around put another fuse in it took 15 minutes to blow. so i swaped out a working relay and the fuse blew right away. another fuse in ran the truck for a few minutes blew again and i have a dim dome light after the fuse blows.my dimmer will not turn the dome light on when the door is closed either now.i also had a set of after market fog lighs i had spliced into the factory fog harness i cut the wire and the fuse is still blowing. if you have any suggestions on what could be going on i would apperciate hearing them

#194 of 259 1996 Ford Ranger with check engine light on
Apr 15, 2010 (7:37 pm)
I have a 96 ranger that i bought off a friend of my parents. He was driving it since roughly 2000 and the check engine light is always on on the dash. A friend of mine also has one from this year with the same issue. is this a flaw with rangers of this year or is it something that needs to be fixed. My mechanic looked at it and only found one code to come up and it said it was the gas cap that was making it stay on so he shut it off. The next day the light came back on. It only goes out when the battery is un hooked or the mechanic shuts it off and then it just comes back on a few days later. anyone have any ideas why it might be doing this?

Gee, you think you might have a bad gas cap?
Or a hole in the vacumn line that goes to the gas tank?
Or maybe if you fix it, the check engine light will stop coming on?

Did the mechanic do a smoke test on the neck? A friend of mine had this issue and when the smoke test was performed they discovered a small fracture located just below the gas cap, ergo, the new gas cap wouldn't fix it. I'm not sure how he fixed his, some type of goop I believe but I know he didn't replace the neck.
