#233 of 339 2000 Ford Ranger won't start.
Sep 03, 2010 (7:25 pm)
New battery. Turn key to start, hear a click from dashboard and thats it nothing else happen. If you turn key to run or start, depress clutch, and short starter solenoid engines cranks away but never starts. If I remove the starter relay from the distribution center and jumper the relay the engine cranks. I know what you think it's the relay, no I tested the relay it's good. Anyone ever run into this before? please help. Oh also replaced ignition switch and I have 0.1 ohms from all body and motor grounds to neg. post.

Hey fordgirl, I have the exact same problem...really frustrating because it always seems to happen when i need to be somewhere. Anyways, did you replace a particular relay or do you just change them around when the starting problem occurs? If you could please let me know if you found a proper fix, thanks!

I have a 1992 ranger, battery was recently replaced, however, when I go to start the truck, the relay engages, but the starter doesn't crank over. I have tapped the starter, checked all the connections, its all good. Should I just replace the starter motor?

#237 of 339 1998 Ford Ranger just quit running.

My son was driving his ranger at about 50 MPH when it just quit and left him at the side of the road. I checked the fuse box relays under the hood and none were (fuel) blown. Now the truck won't start. The truck has the large V6 engine with about 140,000 miles (2 wheel drive).

i think many of the problems listed on the ford truck is the ecc relay. seems it gets sticky after a few years. i have replaced both the ecc relay and the fuel relay and have had no problems since, someone suggested it is actually the relay box but again since ive replaced these two relays ive had no problems, autozone had no record of the ecc relay but the fuel relay works fine so i just bought 2 fuel relays.
before i knew this, when it did stick a simple hard bump on the relay box allowed the truck to start.

#241 of 339 95 Ranger start problem
Nov 21, 2010 (10:53 am)
95 ranger sometimes won't start. Cranks over real fast when it occurs. Use starting fluid several times and that sometimes gets it running, could be just a coincidence. Sits for a short while and it will start. Changed fuel filter and fuel pressure measures 35 lbs. Could it be the crank sensor?

ok i hit a BIG pothole and my 94 ranger 4x4 died, had spark fuel pump wasnt working. I took the fuel pump relay apart and manualy activated it the fuel pump worked , then with the key on i started "wiggling wires" . I found the problem almost instantly by having the cover on the relay off i could tell when it engaged, to the drivers side of the under hood fuse box is a large wire harness that had rubbed against the steel mount and had wore a red 10 gage wire in two. I put a butt splice on it and also added a piece of rubber innertube around the bracket. my problem sounds like so many others on here i thought i would try to help
