1. if it grinds and wont go into gear this would be a syncro problem
2. if just goes into gear and goes no wear this can be a internal clutch problem or i would suggest having put on scanner and they will be able to rule out solinoid problem as yes or no

Location of 4 wheel drive relay on 98 ford ranger


All the relays are under the hood on these rangers, but you problem may be with the control box behind the jump seat on the drivers side. You may have to remove the jump seat to get to it. Once there, the box will have a white,grey or black button on it. Usually on the end where the red light is, Turn the key on and press this button and hold for 5 seconds. This puts the 4 wheel drive shift motor back in sequence. Now without starting the engine and the trans in park if auto and neutral if standard park break set, try the to shift in to 4 high, if you can hear the shift motor run and shift the gears in the transfer case, try 4 low, you should hear the same motion in the transfer case, if so you have solved your problem. If not you may have to move on to the connector on the transfer case, you may have to unplug the connector and look at the pins and socket, if they look corroded, clean and apply some dielectric grease to the pins and the socket and plug back in. Try the 4 High and 4 low again. If it works, great, if not you may have a bad shift motor.
Good luck.

1955 Ford Crwn Vic neutral switch will permit start in any gear not just neut or park. Is this a 2 or 3 speed auto transmission? will start in drive selection and only shift once witn no kickdown gear at...


A 1955 Ford would have a Ford-o-matic transmission which has three speeds forward. The transmission starts out in second gear unless you shift into low.
I am not aware of these transmissions having a neutral safety switch.
The 3 speed automatic transmissions that started in low and had a downshift to second under load were first used in the mid 1960s.

Wont disengage out of 4 wheel drive 1998 ford ranger first time its stuck in 4 low we have backed up turned switch numerous times shut it off and restarted


Be sure to put the truck in neutral, while engine is running, while you disengage from 4 wheel drive (low) to 4 wheel drive (high) and then finally to 2 wheel drive. It is critical to shift transmission into neutral when switching out of 4WD Low, as indicated in your owner's manual. Hopefully, this will help to FixYa problem!

Ford Ranger 98'Splash don't shift 3rd and


you will need to connect it ti a scanner to confirm but it sounds like your solenoid (there is a solenoid that controls those gears inside your tranny) the part is actually cheap and should take no time to replace. the cost comes in a way of replacing the tranny fluid that will be lost.
