Pull the instument pannel out just far enough to get your hand in and when you feel the speedo cable you need to lift up on the connector as close to the pannel as you can get this will unlock the cable and it should just slide out.

Battery being drained while not running.1988 Ford Ranger.

The best thing i found to do is take off the NEGITIVE TERMINAL of the battery and hook up a test lite between the battery post and battery cable. This will light up if there is a drain on the system. If it does then this will let u narrow it down to where it is. If it don't light up then the battery is bad, have the battery tested at ADVANCED AUTO its free.

I purchased a 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab, the speedometer is off, the tires are 205/75 15's is this the correct size?

Is this a 4wd truck? The 4wd optional 15" tire is a 235-60-15, which means that with the tire size you listed, your speedometer will read 3.7% too low (at 60 mph indicated, you're actually going 62.3mph).

How do you replace the dash light bulbs in a 1992 Ford Ranger XLT

remove the plastic shrowd on the dash by taking out the screws in the instrament display and the ones under the radio and temp controls. take out the ashtray and remove the two screws there. take off the light nob and gently pull the panel off once you have removed all the screws. you will then have the access needed to get to the lights.

My Ford Ranger

my 86 ranger heater core was behind the glove box, not to hard to replace, remove two hoses and access cover.
speedocable connects behind instrument panel and to the side of transmission. (electrical ones are easier, just a small component on the side of trans.)
i think you mean FUEL gauge? there is a sending unit inside the fuel tank (sometimes fuel level sending unit is combined with the fuel pump) buy yourself a Haynes manual #36071
