Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1 Answer

2001 Ford Ranger will not start

All of the electrical components inside the truck are dead, including the radio and all of the lights, and the engine wont turn over at all. Tried to jump the battery but that didn't work. Could this be a relay or a fuse or something bigger. Would appreciate any ideas.

Battery problems. First the radio stops working, then a few days later the car will not start.

You may have loose or corroded terminals at the battery, that will affect the alternator's ability to charge, affect all electrical components including the radio. So you end up with radio and starting problems.

Driving and 1999 ford ranger lost power and stalled. It will not turn over but the radio and lights do come on.

check the cat wires on the plug, the only other thing is to have the engine management computer checked to see what codes are on it,(ECU). sometimes the plug seals go on the electrics and water gets in and shorts out the electrics. so you could check these.

What would short out the brake lights on 2001 ford ranger?

Doublecheck your battery voltage with the engine running. If it's above about 15V, TURN THE ENGINE OFF and get the regulator replaced! That's a classic symptom of a bad voltage regulator - I've seen it burn out everything on the vehicle - including the ignition.

1999 Ford Ranger radio is dead. Any ideas?

Sounds a lot like it's been under water.
I found unplugging things 1 at a time and reconnecting shaves the corrosion off. Check the Earth wire as well. Door sensor sounds like it's slightly out of alignment.

How would i get a 2001 ford ranger 2.3 l 16 valve to stop shutting off at 92 mph

Your saying that if you exceed 92mph the engine just shuts down (off)? Does your engine light go on? If so can you retrieve any codes? You may want to inspect the trucks repair history. See when the last tune-up was done. Including the fuel-filter. Also look at the fuel-line pressure. See if the wiring to the crank positioning sensor is covered in oil and-or is on good shape. The more information the better.
