Everytime I put a 50 amp fuse in position #5 and turn on the key the blade fuse burns out is it the starter relay, ignition switch, starter or just something else all together

Try disconnecting your alternator temporarily. It may have a shorted diode but that would also normally drain the battery too unless it charges over a relay.
The starter relay can't cause this alone and the currents through the ignition switch mostly control relays. If removing the alternator cable didn't work, I would remove the starter (only a few bolts) after disconnecting the ground cable from your battery and try turning it by hand. It should be stiff but not impossible and if it refuses to turn, it may have a short from the field to the case.  It isn't really possible to use a multimeter to check the starter's windings because they are very low resistance when normal (the beast draws 120-200 amps to start) and would look like shorts on a standard meter anyhow.

98 ford ranger 4cyl 5 speed. When u turn the key to on position I get no warning lights on dash except battery light and seatbelt light. Nothing else.truck wont start. Dont even click.


Check the batter voltage first. If not that check fuse panel under hood for a 100 amp fuse check to see if the fuse is bad or if it has power. Also check fuseable link wire at starter to see if wire is still good. If it is bad, internal short possible on starter, take out and test it. Replace fusible link.

You should have a couple of fusable links located at the battery or starter solenoid. Check to make sure they have a good connection. "wires hooked to positive side"

Check the starting circuit fuses. Most likely its a bad starter. If you can easily get at it. Drop it out attach a ground line between the body of the starter and any clean metal under the car. Have someone look at the starter while you try starting. If it does noithing when you turn the key to start, its time for a new one.

Why is fuse E hot on ground side w/key in on position. w/fuse removed.


Fuse E is 15 amps, not 50 and does not have a "ground side". The fuel pump relay receives power through 20A fuse O. The fuse links are "hot all the time" because they are connected directly to the positive post of the battery.

Blowing 50 amp fuse under hood in 2002 crown vic


To blow a fifty amp fuse would take a major short circuit, referred to as a 'dead short' this means that a wire with 12 volts positive (+) is in direct contact with an Earth (-). If you follow the path of the power you will find where this is happening. sometimes you may need to temporarily disconnect some contacts

Maybe the ignition is bad- or your starter solenoid stuck in engaged position?

My 2004 ford ranger turns on when I turn the key but wont send power to the starter


I also have a 2004 Ranger and put in a new starter because all I got was a clicking sound. I did a lot of research after that and it seems the BATTERY doesn't have the cranking amps to turn over the motor. I have it in the shop right now and will know for sure tomorrow but all indications point in this direction.

Starter Repair on 2000 Ford Ranger


The easest way to find the starter is to open the hood and have some one crank the engine while you watch. If all else fails follow the positive cable from you battery it may go to the silonoid on the fire wall but the positive cable from the silnoid will go to the starter hope this helps
