#87 of 337 Re: Something drawing battery down [bolivar]

Thanks, great info. The alarm is a ford vehicle alarm but installed by the dealer. I had pulled all the fuses and looked for arching across the positive terminal on the battery. That didn't reveal anything so I've pulled the fuses on the alarm and left it hooked to the battery to see if I get the same drain. Thanks again for the help.
P.S. Any idea where to find a wiring diagram for a 2003 Ford Ranger. I'm thinking of yanking the security system.

My 05 ranger shut off yesterday while at idle. It sputtered and shut off. It will not re-start..it turns over but won't start at all. No warning lights have come on prior to that and I have had no other problems til now. What else can I do??

If the it's dealer installed, I consider it aftermarket. Probably still junk. Failed components inside the 'box/es' could be causing the problems. Cutting into wiring and and/or using the cheep clamp on connectors will cause future problems.

Thanks for all the help. I removed the security system and haven't had any problems. Your advice on the Alarm system was spot on.
#92 of 337 can't turn key in igntion
Jun 24, 2008 (8:09 am)
I have a 2003 Ranger XLT 2wd - new problem: sometimes I can't turn the key in the ignition - it's stuck until you jiggle the steering wheel. I don't want to wait until it gets permanently stuck off and needs to be drilled--- So, is there any alternative to taking it to a Ford Dealer to get the lock cylinder replaced ? I also don''t want to end up with 2 different keys - one for the ignition and one for the doors. This seems to be a Ford problem-same thing happend on my Villager and the dealer wanted $400 to fix it. Any ideas ?

Fords are long known for doing this. My 91 SHO did this.

Similar to Arnieboy1, I stopped off at a store and when I turned the key to go home, all I got was a hard click. The engine would not even turn over. I turned the lights on, but even they did not dim after the click. No power to what?
