If the battery is showing 6 volts, its half dead. Are you sure the cables are clean and tight ?
Battery voltage at the battery and starter should be at least 12 volts.

If you hear the relay click, but no pressure at all then it would be the fuel pump needing replacement

SOURCE: 1991 ford f-150 fuel pump will not come on

remember the switch only gets power for 1 second when u turn the key on, the common problem is the ignition starter switch comes apart, it is located at top of the steering column near the bottom, drop the column down (2 nuts) and inspect the switch for separation.

2002 ford ranger start engine truck run for 5 minutes an shuts off then i have to jump start truck battery is dead bad alternator or battery


taking the battery leads of a running alternator is one sure way of destroying the alternator
if you think a battery is dead you have it load tested and replaced if it doesn't meet the test
what you should be doing is taking the vehicle to an accredited auto electrician and having the battery load tested and the alternator and voltage regulator professionally tested for proper operation

You might not have a good connection on your jump. Remove the battery and alternator and have both tested at your local parts store. My guess is the alternator is bad and the battery just needs a charge. If they both test good, you have a short somewhere in the truck.

05 ford ranger started knocking and shut off now won't crank. What is wrong?


Started knocking and shut off ? Now will not start?
That sounds bad - check fluids - engine oil and coolant - those three symptoms can indicate overheating (either by lack of coolant or engine oil).
Did either fluid get low AND does the engine oil look contaminated - milky colored and way overful.
Not Start? Does it turn the engine and just not fire up running?
Or does the engine not turn over at all?
If the engine is siezed - you can tell by the electrical power needed to crank the engine - turn on the lights and try to crank the engine - if all you hear from the starter is a click and all the lights dim - that means a lot of power is needed like:
1. the battery doesn't have enough power - jump start to verify
2. or it requires more power to turn the engine than the battery can provide - engine siezed - try turning the engine by hand with socket/wrench to verify.
I hope your engine is not siezed - if so - hope you still have warranty coverage on the powertrain.
Please let me know what you find and if this helps?
