Go to http://www.nhtsa.gov/ which is the Nat. Highway Transportation Safety Admin website. It has areas where people reports problems with their autos. Look for your Ranger.
You should also report your vehicle fire to them. If people don't report this stuff, then recalls will never be done. Somewhere on the site it will also tell you how to make a report.
Are you still under warranty? If so, get Ford involved in this.

Have you received an answer to this dilemma? I have a 1996 Ranger that's doing this plus the window washer starts for no reason. I had the multi-switch replaced for $215.00 w/o success. I've ordered a wiper motor but I don't know if that's going to solve the problem.

Just recently, I turned on the lights, and the windshield wipers came on spraying the cleaner also in full force! The only solution I had was to turn the lights off and hurry home.
Have had numerous problem with the light on the horn starts blowing and now this.
Engine lights frequently comes on and disconnect the batter take that light off ( when it first came on, I took it to the dealer, warranty had just expired, and cost me over $200 for some kind of part and before I got home, the light was back on. So not wanting to deal with the Ford Service dept.
Noticing that others have had these problems also, does anyone know of a solution?

I am having trouble with my 1992 Ford Ranger lights. I recently noticed that the dash lights didn't work. Further investigation revealed that the tail lights, front/rear parking lights, & reverse lights also do not work. The front headlights, dome light, brake and blinkers all work when in use. I checked all fuses (#1, 3, 11, & 13) that have anything to do with the lights, and they are all good. I replaced the dash mounted light switch, but it made no difference. I checked all light bulbs and they appear to be fine.
Is there a wire terminal or bus somewhere under the daskh or hood that may be shorted out? My Haynes manual i sno help here! I can't figure this out.

I just got a 1995 ranger here is a list of the things that don't work : power door locks, power mirrors, heate, window washer. Stereo kinda works, if you touch the vol control it shuts off and none of the other controls like station select, am/fm etc. Also when you turn the knob to select 4 wd nothing happens. I have checked the fuses and all are good. HELP

no I have not, but the problem stopped on it's own.
I am sure that another problem will occur, especially after I take it in for oil change etc. seems that soon after, something will happen. makes me wonder if ford company can mess with ones computer on the truck.
