Truck Won't Start At All

Problem 1: I have a Ford Ranger 2.3L, 2003 which was running fine than I left parked for about 2weeks. When I came back I try to start but never start even the starter never click at all. The battery is very strong. I observed when turn ON the key the ANTI-THEFT light blinking. All the ignition were ON except the blinking anti-theft. The fuel pump is run ok.

Problem 2: I have the Ford Ranger same as the above one. The Check Engine light ON and before it run rough but now it cranking to start but never start at all. THe fuel pump is running ok.

Could you please assist me on these problem

Thank you

Before replacing the starter get a volt meter and test the voltage coming out of the voltage regulator which the power comes from the battery to the regulator down to the starter also make sure all wires on the starter are clean and what I mean is from rust because I had an f150 that did the same thing

Ford ranger wont start


first of all make sure battery is fully charged auto zone will test batteries for free but if you can get it jumped and running while it is running take the positive side cable off the battery and if it dies then it is the alternator and also look at the condition of the drive belt but if you do all this and the truck does not start spray very little starter fluid in the throttle body if it starts ask yourself when was last time I changed the fuel filter and also have someone to be back by the gas tank to see if you can hear the pump and check out the fuel pump relay which is normally under the hood on the drivers side before changing the fuel pump

2003 Ford Ranger starts hard.


That sounds like it could be one of many things. Have you ever given the truck a tune up? I suggest the following things first.

New Air Filter
New Spark Plugs
New Plug Wires
Oil Change (and filter)

These are the basic necessities of an engine. Having a dirty air filter, or plugs that are firing weak can surely cause this problem. Try giving the truck a good old tune up and see how it starts then.
