    every now and then. Sometimes you had to do that little gas trick where you spray it into your intake then it would fire up everytime.

After 2 weeks of searching and testing and fault elimination as I could not start my Ranger, I found that it was the bonnet release module that had gone faulty. I could turn the engine, but the glow lamp in the dash would turn of immediately when turning the key and the engine would not start. I took the unit out and turned it upside down it now starts first time.

96 Ranger new battery new solenoid new starter. Can roll it and pop the clutch, but key wont start. Everything turns on but no click when I turn the key.


I had the same problem with mine. It ended up being the neutral safety switch connected to the clutch pedal. At least with mine you had to hold down the clutch or the truck didnt think it was in neutral. No neutral means it wont start.

I hope that helps

92 ford ranger i was coming home and everything was fine but it went off and it wont start again

this could be from a number of things. if it ran until you turned it off, chances are it needs a new battery because the alternator would have supplied the voltage while the truck was running, but once you turn it off, there's no juice left in the battery to start it back up again. check the dc voltage on the battery. if it's below 12 after the truck has been off for at least a half hour, replace it. to test the alternator, have the truck running anywhere between 1,000 and 2,000 rpm's and turn on ALL accessories. put the ac on max, turn on the rear defogger if you have it, turn on the radio, (it doesnt have to be turned up all the way) turn on the lights, high beams, and hazards and check the voltage at the battery. you dont want it to be below like 13v dc. also check for any A/C voltage. there should be none. if there's any A/C voltage, or the DC voltage drops below 13V, replace the alternator.

Turn the key like you are trying to start it.
At the SAME time - smack the starter with a small hammer not too too hard..
