Question about 2004 Ford Ranger

2 Answers

MY 2004 Ford Ranger engine turns over but wont start.

Fuel pump is working. Previously I had issues with it not starting so I pressed the fuel reset button, it would start. Now, however, the reset button is not fixing the problem, and even though the engine will turn over but it will not start and run. Any suggestions?

SPARK OR FUEL!
FIRST CHECK THAT YOU HAVE AMPLE SPARK FROM THE COIL, COIL PACKS, ETC... TO THE PLUGS
RUN A FUEL PUMP PRESSURE TEST IF SPARK IS O.K.
NEXT IF IT IS A THROTTLE BODY INJECTION...VISUALLY INSPECT THAT A SPRAY OF FUEL IS GOING INTO THROTTLE BODY WHEN THROTTLE CABLE IS TURNED WITH IGNITION ON

i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

if you can hear the pump working the first thing I would do is ask your self when was last time fuel filter was changed and you gave it a good tune up and replaced the drive belt

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

I do believe the FORD is located under ther hood either on the firewall or on L/S wheel housing. Have encountered many , many faulty control modules. There came a time if you came across a Ford product with a no start, you automatically suspected it, and 90% of the time you were right.

There is no fuel reset button on GM vehicles !

Will not start


Assuming it is a fuel issue, if you have an electric fuel pump like my F-250 Super Duty Diesel, make sure it is working. Start simple. Check the fuse to the fuel pump. If fuse OK, check the accident reset button (see owner's manual for location). End by pulling the fuel line, turn the key to the "on" postion and see if fuel flows. Be sure to catch the fuel in a container - don't want to make a mess. Good luck!

Maybe something wrong with inertia switch? Part of diagram so you can see inertia switch wire colors. How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Also, use a gage check proper fuel pressure, my info says 35--45 psi. I've seen fuel pumps that would run, but wouldn't make proper fuel pressure. I'm not saying the fuel pump has a problem, at the moment, I don't know?

Try resetting fuel pump. I do believe the reset button is on the forward passengers side of vehicle. The button is behind the plastic shield. Reset once or twice. This hopefully will fix your problem. Look in your manual for exact placement of fuel pump reset button

1994 ford ranger ran ot of gas now won't start. Put fuel in it made sure saftey switch (reset switch) was okay. But still wont start. Fuel pump seems to be working. Any suggestions ...


Do you know what the fuel pressure is at?

Try this. While somebody cranks the engine over whack the bottom of the fuel tank (about dead center) with a rubber mallet. If the vehicle starts replace the pump. The fuel pump is kept cool by the fuel in the tank. Running the tank dry is hard on the fuel pump.

Hello You will have to reset your fuel pump switch located passenger side right foot kick panel when you press it it should stay down if this does not work your probably looking at a fuel pump not working.
