Its your starter solenoid. Passenger firewall follow the positive battery cable to it. Replace it amd it will start fine. I keep an extra in all my rangers as it is truly that common a problem

Not start after sitting


Try turning the key just to on. Listen for the fuel pump to run and quit. try this 2 or 3 times then attempt to start . if this works it may indicate a leak in the fuel system. Hope this helps

How do you check a 1989 ford ranger starter relay


Try quickly turning your key to the start position and back to the on/run position. Your truck is like mine, if you have a quick hand turning the key to start your truck it will start normally. Honestly that's the best solution. Hopefully I explained myself thoroughly.

1992 ford ranger will not crank- the starter will turn it over but never start. when i trung the key can hear the fuel pump turn on - added fuel still nothing . been a great truck since 92- what do i need...


Check for spark. No spark can be from the coil, igntion module, crank sensor. Have the codes check, this will at least point you in the right direction.

1993 ford ranger starter turns won't crank


Youll have to take it out and check the condition of the ring gear through the starter hole use mirror and torch if you have to.Before taking the starter out turn engine over by hand to a different position then try to start with key.Try this several times if it doesnt work first time Why was the original starter replaced.Im assuming the starter you brought was reconditioned or new Did you check that the battery is still ok?
