Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

Speedodometer stopped working, o/d light flashing and my truck does not want to go out of first gear???

I have a 2000 ford ranger and all of a sudden with no warning I began having problems. All at once my speed odometer stopped working and it did not want to go out of first gear. I lowered it into second and picked up my speed and popped it back into drive. Then the O/D light began flashing and further down the road the transmission jerked pretty hard a couple times until I got it back home and parked. What is going on, could someone please give me a little insight as what I am dealing with concerning what has to be done for repair??????

The best thing would be to have transmission control module - ( computer ) checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . The flashing O/D light is trying to tell you that . The transmission is in limp home mode . A sensor or shift solenoid is most likely the problem . Your transmission is electronically controlled , has sensors , shift solenoids , an a computer that controls it all , plus electrical signals (inputs) from the engine computer .

SOURCE: !998 ford ranger stuck in 4x4

sounds like it's the motor is going bad or has a bad connection, try cleaning the connector if there isn't any gunk in the connector, check the manual see if there is a ohmn test you can run on the motor, if not i'd replace the motor.

Has fuel filter & spark plugs been changed lately, if not good inexpensive place to start. Does it happen more when you try to give it gas hard, or even when accelerating slowly? Worse in wet weather or no?

Hi I have a 2000 Ford Ranger and the air bag light is flashing


The light (on the key switch) that indicates whether the passenger airbag is on or off is, more than likely, burned out. You can either replace the whole switch ($$$) or you can take it apart and solder a new led into the circuit board. You can get the bulb at radio shack (make sure it is 12v). Good Luck!

The trans has failed, is the OD light on the shift handle blinking? in any event you need to get the transmission control module tested for trouble codes, this will give us some idea of what has happened.
