Hello, I have replaced the starter, replaced the starter silonod, and the checked the wires to the starter. It is a 1991 Ford Ranger with a 4.0 engine, 5 speed. Can any one help it only clicks one time when starting and that is what it was doing before the new starter and silonod. The battery is also new. Please help.

rick82721....go back and read posts #252 thru 256. Be sure to read the last paragraph of post 252. It has been four months now since I replaced the three little relay packs and I have had no starting problems since. You'll find the website and part number in the posts mentioned above. I have a 2.3 liter, not sure if you engine has the same set up but if it does its worth a shot. The relays only cost about $12 total shipped to your mailbox.

My husband was driving the ranger and it started acting funny then shut down. Got it home still wont start back up. had battery checked had it replaced, Starter tested fine. The truck doesn't crank, when key is turned to start the truck the dash lights go dim, and the door locks lock (doesn't have auto lock for the doors) We even tried to start it by bypassing the starter still nothing. What could nit be? Any ideas?

it could maybe be your alternator not giving it enough power to crank over the started and it would b trying hard which would kill the battery and dim the lights you can also get those tested try putting jumper cables on it to another car and let it charge for a few minutes and then c if it will try to turn over then

#295 of 339 91 Ranger won't start Changed fuel pump relay

My wonderful 91 Ranger is not starting.
Have good elec. Battery is new. Replaced the fuel pump relay.
Still nothing. Can hear the sound of fluid(fuel?) when I try to start it.
Either a spark problem or a fuel problem.

I have the same problem with my taurus. In researching the issue, not finding any solutions, I've submitted a complaint on the nhtsa.
