Question about 2005 Ford Ranger
I have had my '05 Ranger for about two weeks. Everything worked fine. Went out to drive to town and it wouldn't start. Worked the clutch a few times and nothing, turned the key off and back on and pushed the clutch in again and it started. I figured it was the clutch safety switch. Went to town to get one on Saturday afternoon and couldn't find one. Bought a Haynes book and came home and started trouble shooting planning on bypassing the switch with a jump wire temporarily. Located the proper wires and nothing happened. After further checking I have power coming out of the start wire from the start switch but I do not get power to the clutch switch. Jumped a power wire to the clutch switch and it started right up. According to the book the only place power goes after leaving the start switch is to the clutch switch or to the RAP module. But this truck shouldn't have a RAP module on it as it does not have power door locks and as far as I know they are tied in with the RAP module through the keyless remote. So I am lost.
There is a another starter solenoid, Fords have two, look on the passenger inside fender, it is there.
