Coming out? None
You should have a starter draw of about 250-300 amps during cranking. Disconnect the fuel or ignition system and crank for several seconds to get a good reading.

1989 Ford Ranger. Wont start. Just clicks. Dome light works. Other lights don't. Any suggestions?

Sounds like flat or faulty battery if the main lights don't work. The dome light is only 5 amps and will light on about 10 volts. Starter needs 13 volts and 160 amps. First thing to do is put the battery onto charge on a 6 amp charger.

Once the battery is charged up, try it and if that doesn't work, check fuses and then the starter and solenoid.

Fix my ford ranger

Have the battery load tested. Sounds like while the battery has the 12 volts to run the lights it does not have the Amps to turn the starter. The clicking is from the starter solinoid.
