Try pumming the switch and see if there is power to one side in the off position. If not and there is power flowing through then you will need to replace the switch.

1998 Ford Ranger Truck Clutch problems


I remember a problem with the Ranger Series involving the hydraulic assisted clutch. There was a special refill procedure for a few Year Models. If the hydraulics leaked during storage an air bubble could occur and they are next to impossible to get fresh fluid back to fill the void. And it would not fix the leak.

I remember a video showing all the components fastened to a display board to train Mechanics on the extra effort needed to bleed this system.

I would say to search the Web under a topic like "Ford Ranger hydraulic clutch bleeding" to find the article. Even if you replace the current clutch cylinder, it may be no less difficult to refill. Your mechanic may need the info you find.

I have a 1998 Ford F-250 auto trans with push button OD won't go into gear, I turn it off and on then it will go into gear it doesn't stay though. Any suggestions because I really need my truc


Are you able to start your vehicle in both park and neutral? if not then you might be looking at a new prndl switch. The vehicle not staying in gear while driving sounds like quad drivers though. Burnt out quad drivers will not relay proper v-rev to the the ecu and can burn it out as well turning a 300 dollar job into a 2k job. I worked at ford and we offered a diagnosis for 100 bucks but i would recommend getting the actual work done cheaper somewhere else as we charged 95 an hour labor.

Tyring to understand the od off light when i push the switch it lights up on dash and push it again it goes off should it not be lit up on dash under normal driving conditions


THE OD LIGHT SHOULD ONLY BE LIT UP WHEN THE OD IS TURNED OFF LIKE WHEN YOUR TOWING. WHEN TOWING YOU DONT WANT THE OD ON .PUTS TOO MUCH STRESS ON TRANS. UNDER NORMAL OPPERATION THE LIGHT SHOULD BE OFF...

What is the od off light mean?


Transmission Overdrive Off. Likely a push button switch on the dash to control this; some driving conditions are better coped with without overdrive(more power for towing, etc) but ordinarily you would want OD on for economy.
