I would go through your fuses again to get the key chime and signals to work correctly. Possibly you mixed a couple of the fuses. They take the specific fuse for a reason. For your 4x4 I would check the 4x4 control module. Have a ford mechanic or someone with brains on fords to check it. Good luck
#200 of 208 Whine while driving in a straight line.

06 Ranger 4x4, when driving in a straight line I get a whining noise that sounds like very bad tires, when taking a long sweeping curve to the left the noise ceases. A friend tells me it's the RH wheel bearing, someone else said they are a bear to replace. Any advice would be most welcome. I'm fairly good at auto repairs in general.

I would replace the whole right hub. Couple hundred maybe to do it. If you replace the whole hub you won'r have to worry about your ABS sensor or anyother sensor down there going bad for a longer time than just changing the bearing.

Thanks so much for the advice, so I take it you have seen this problem & resolution previously?

My hub was humming, so I had Ford replace it when they were replacing my timing chain guides. I think it was about 300.00 for the part and them to do it. Not too bad, cuz Autozone wanted almost that much for a new hub... Good luck! Ranger Dangers bring Ranger problems.
Oh but once I got timing chain guides fixed and new hub my Ranger is a champ again(knock on wood) and went mudding in October through the alleghany mtns.!!!! Ranger Danger impressed me with what he went through!!

on my ranger 4hi and 4lo lights would come on and i could hear it click but no power i took the right hub off and manually put it in 4low it worked until i turn truck off it went back to 2wd i pulled both front tires off and found that the vaccun lines going to the hubs were dry rotted and cracked replaced tubes and now 4hi works great still no 4lo but i will figure it out soon. so check all your vaccum lines for cracks and dry rot if you replace one do both be safe

I have 98 Ford Ranger and am having the same problem that you described.
I have checked the cab switch and transfer case motor they have both checked out good. I was hoping that you have found the problem and could help me out. Thanks.
