My name is Dave Palmer & I own 1994 Ford Ranger.
With a 4 cyl in it & I had the same prob with it starting that Ya'lll R having. And I found it 2 B the Module's ground. The Mod looked ok & didn't give any code into the computer. But I pulled the Mod off & checked the back & it was all caroded. I cleaned all of it off & cleaned the three mounting holes because they were also full of crud. Then I replaced the insulating jelly & reinstalled it & have had no problems since. I checked every idea from this sight first. Then went to a friend who owns & runs a repair shop here in North Adams Ma. He has a Computer Program He pays for that he types in a problem & it runs many different sens & it gives every option to try before you spend hundereds of dollers & spend hours looking. It's a real time saver. But if any of Ya'll want 2 try this idea of the Mod B my guest I've done it on 2 other Ranges & it's worked well. So good luck

I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT. I have been having problems for the last couple of years with it not starting. The engine doesn't turn over at all when keyed. I replaced the starter twice, which proved to be only a temporary fix. I also bought a new relay, and most times when it had trouble starting, simply pulling the relay would allow the truck to start. At this point, that is no longer working. I know that there has to be a bigger problem. I have considered replacing the entire relay box, but I am not sure if it will be a real solution. Any advice would be helpful.

After the truck ran for a while an i shut it off it would take hours to get it running again. This went on for weeks and now it wont start at all, im getting no spark. The coils fine and ive replaced the distributor. Ive been told to replace the crankshaft sensor but it doesnt have one, also to check the fuel relay but this has nothin to do with spark. Any advice

got in my 98 ranger last night and it no longer starts. when i turn the key it makes a loud clicking sound, but no engine noise at all. figured it was the battery or alternator, but the lights and everything else work just fine. what could this be?

Check for corroded cables. Poke around, it might be under the insulation near the ends.

Wild guesses - A leaking injector/s lets one/more cylinders fill up with gas after a shutdown.
-Leaking fuel pressure regulator lets vacumn line fill up with gas after shutdown and this causes hard starting.
#231 of 337 only 1 coil is working. but i know they are both good.

i have an '89 ford ranger 4 cylinder, with 8 spark plugs, it looks like the crank sensor has been replaced and the module before the coils has been replaced. both of the coils are good but only one side gets spark. all of the fuses are good. i was wondering where i should look for a bad ground? and where the "E.E.C." sensor or something like that is located? please help me out. thank you.
