    I have a 2005 ford ranger that just quit on the highway. I first thought it was the fuel system so I changed the fuel filter. Drive the truck across the parking lot and it quit again. I have not yet been able to troubleshoot the issue when it quits as I can not duplicate the problem, my son has been driving the truck.



    I started the truck and let it run for over an hour and it did just fine--but I hesitate to let it go on the highway again untiol I know I have it fixed.

    These trucks seem to be prone to bad ground wires! The one near the fuel tank, as well as every other should be removed and cleaned. Frankster016

I have a 2005 Ford ranger 3.0 v6 that has been stalling when driving and the inertia switch has been popped but I cant seem to find one online for a replacement part. Does the 04 switch fit it?


The replacement kits (includes Conversion Kit. Includes Switch And Bracket, Cowl Trim Door, Instruction Sheet) are the same for 2004 & 2005 models. Since it includes the trim, the kits are sold by the interior color. Ford discontinued just the switch (made a change) some time back. Ford OEM auto parts Motorcraft filters license plates

05 ford ranger 3.0 xlt fuel pump???


I had this same issue. There is an inertia switch located below glove box. Mine went bad. Here is what I wrote to another person with the similar problem:

I have a 2005 Ranger Edge. I had the same problem. I did two things. First I replaced the fuel pump and it worked again for about 2 months. Then it stopped working again so I replaced the inertia switch with a new one from the Ford Dealership. It worked again for about a month. Than it stopped again, so I replaced the wiring that goes from the inertia switch to the main box on the bottom right passenger side. I also put the inertia switch inside the casing on the lower right so it couldn't be kicked. It has been working for 2 weeks now. I hope nothing else happens.

On another note, I had another electrical problem. My speedometer cluster stopped working and my mechanic found loose wires rubbing against metal on the inside. I think the electrical components on these Ford Rangers are just cheaply made. That is the only thing to check for you now. If it isn't the fuel pump or the inertia switch, just check all the wiring from fuel pump to inertia switch to make sure it is all done correctly. Also check all fuses for fuel pump/inertia switches.

Sometimes I say I and mean a mechanic, I am not a car expert, but would like to be.
