Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

'97 Ford Ranger XL has a continual dinging when truck is off.

More times than not when I turn my truck off it has this continual dinging sound that will go on for hours. I am not sure where the correct fuse is to stop this problem and it also affects the overhead light, which will not turn off when the noise starts. The truck runs really good except for the noise which thanks goodness does not ring when I drive. I know two people with the same truck and they do not have the same problems...

I had this same problem.. i just had to remove the key.. but to permantently stop i had to replace both door sensors.. because it was not sensing they were both shut then the light would stay on and the dinging would continue until i removed key and or fixed this... this may not be the problem but might help..

My 97 ford ranger wont start - no spark.

Maybe you should check to see if the timing is still intact. Have someone turn the key while you look behind the timing cover to see if the cam gear is spinning.

I need the fuse box diagram for a '97 Ford Ranger

By the the way there john-boy from about this year up to 2005 have the same problem. The parts stores discount or otherwise don't have a manual that describes the locations either. The fusebox is also in the door jam and not under the dash as you explained. There are also half as many over again under the hood inside the power-box. On top of that there are fusible links in various locations. The inside covers of the panel are numbered along with the fuses and provide no real information on the function of the fuse or the relays either for that matter. A replacement Owners Manual is about as expensive and far more helpful in this situation. You will probably come out a lot better in the end joining a DIY Vehicle Maintenance site online. The book you see only shows you the workings for one car. The sites allow unlimited access to all makes and models for about $20 a year.
