#202 of 259 Trailer wire - no left signal
Jun 19, 2010 (3:00 pm)
My 1999 XLT 4L Ranger came with a tow package. The left signal (yellow wire in ford main wire harness) has failed. I disonnected the trailer harness plug and there is no signal. Next I disconnected the plug on the harnees that leads to the right side up near the rear frame and bumper and have a signal on the male prong.
Following this yellow wire to the front of the truck, I untaped the harness and found a heat shrink connection on the brown wire. Moving on, after dropping the spare tire for access, I went as far as a "Y" wire connection all taped up just above the rear axle.
From what I can tell there is no signal at this point. Fuses seem ok. Any help is appreciated.

I have a 2000 Ranger XLT The door locks work sometimes and other times they move only slightly when the switch is pushed. I've checked the grounds under the hood. Anyone else had this problem and found a solution?

My truck started with a problem with the lights dimming out under acceleration. Also, gauge needles moving (vibration effect) while driving. All fuses are good and cannot see any shorts behind cluster. Battery and alternator were tested to be good. Finally, the lights did not come on for a day or two and then suddenly they just started to work again. I since replaced the light switch. Any ideas on the gauges and lights dimming. I know there must be a short somewhere.

I have the same problem right now. All, the gauges bounce around while driving. Headlights dim under acceleration. Alternator and batt tested good too. I remember in some older cars I had in the past it was always the alternator. Im assuming it could still be even if it tests good as I believe the diodes are inside. I might try that next. If you have discovered anything new please let me know when you get this post ok.
Thank You and good luck to you.

Just saw your post, I see it's about 3 weeks old.
But, wild guesses - a plugged up fuel filter - oh, never mind I see you've changed that.
Or a failing fuel pump. Get a pressure gauge and screw into the fitting on the fuel line under the hood. Find out somewhere what the pressure should be. I think it probably needs about 45 pounds of pressure.

Well, you replied to a 3 year old post - doubt that guy is still waiting around for an answer.
With ribbed belts, they don't slip often. But if you've got oil or something on the belt driving the alternator, that might be the problem.

My truck started with a problem with the lights dimming out under acceleration. Also, gauge needles going crazy while driving. (vibration effect). All fuses are good and cannot see any shorts behind cluster. Battery and alternator were tested to be good. I even sprayed all contacts with contact cleaner. Finally, the lights did not come on for a day or two and then suddenly they just started to work again. I since replaced the light switch. Any ideas on the gauges and lights dimming out while driving? Otherwise truck runs fine.
