Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab
When we try to crank the engine, you can hear the solenoid click but the starter does not engage and it completely drains the battery. We have removed the starter and taken it to Checker / Schucks / Krager to have it tested. It passed their testing just fine. We removed the battery and had it tested as well. It also passed just fine. What else could be causing this problem? (It's acting like a Dead Short to Ground) Could the Solenoid mounted on the fender be bad and shorted out?
I would check the alternator and you can do this yourself if you can get the car running once you get it running and while it is running take the positive side cable of the battery off and if it dies then it is the alternator
