Correct. Everything started happening at the same time after the spark plugs were changed out. Electrical problem started then and effects:
1. Tacho Meter does not work
2. Temperature Gauge does not work
3. a/c does not come on
4. sometimes it does not start, when turning key there is nothing. Keep trying though and it will start up fine after a couple times. This only happens once in a while, not every time I try to start it.
I was thinking of taking to ford to get a diagnostic test done to have them find the problem at least. On a tight budget though, and have the shop manual now but it is for all the truck engines and hard to sort through it all.
Frustrated, and broke..

I have a 93 ranger I just put a new engine in that seems to run fine at low speed. As soon as I reach 25-30 mph I loose all power until my speed decreases to 15 mph. I've checked all my connections and cant find any problems.

high mounted backup lights on my 1998 Ford Ranger are not working. I have check the bulbs and they are OK. Checked with Volt meter and getting no current to the sockets when in reverse. The brake light in the same panel works OK. Does anyone have experience with this problem?

Those are cargo lights, not reverse lights. They come on when the interior light switch is activated, or on some models when the door is opened.

#13 of 257 '01 Ranger; Airbag light on
Sep 04, 2006 (3:07 pm)
The airbag warning light on my dashboard (do they still call them that?) just started to come on today and I was wondering if there was something I could do about it prior to taking it to the dealer and paying them large to make it go away. It flashes for a short period then stays on constantly. The manual says to take it to a dealer for service immediately if this condition arises. Anybody have any suggestions?
#14 of 257 89 Ranger stalling problem
Sep 05, 2006 (2:08 pm)
While driving my Ranger warm or cold,the engine ignition cuts out for 2 to 3 seconds at at time sometimes longer. When this happens the radio also goes dead but the AC fan does not. After a few seconds without touching anything the radio comes back on and the ignition system works again. I've tugged on every wire harness in the vehicle while it is running and cannot make it happen. Any ideas??
#15 of 257 1991 Ranger Ignition Lockswitch
Nov 09, 2006 (1:44 pm)
The Lockswitch on my '91 Ranger no longer clicks between positions and is stuck in the "on" postion and will not activate the the starter when rotated to the start position. I cannot figure out how to remove the switch from the housing. This is not a tilt steering wheel. Can anyone give me any hints on how to replace this switch.

Will a 2000 Ranger accept the headlight and corner lense assembly from a 2001+ Ranger?
