Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

Is it worth my deductible

Im driving a 99 ford ranger, extended cab, 2 wheel drive.Just the other day i had a wreck. A guy hit me on my driver side bumper and the driver side wheel and the ABS light is on and one of the front wheels is locking up and the brake light, the front bumper needs replaced, i need a new valance, my front left turn signal light is completely gone, the headlights are off a bit, the driver side wheel fender well is poped out a bit, and to go straight i have to turn the wheel a bit to the left, and i was just woundering if this is all worth paying my $500 deductible?

It maybe if you plan on keeping the truck,there is obvious mechanical damage to the front end weather it's minor to major I can't tell you,it may be a bent tie rod or bent wheel or the frame may be bent,either way driving the truck in this condition will damage the brakes(not the one already damaged)steering and prematurely wear your tires at the very least and could cause major damage to the rear axle,you need to get some estimates and compare them to the deductible,because it may cost just a couple of hundred to repair the mechanical problems or it could cost a couple thousand just to do the mechanical,add at least a thousand more for the body damage.Your truck books at about $3800 to $4500 with all options,but factor in the economy and It's possible the insurance may call it a total loss also,Hope this info helps.

Where is fuse that operatrs 4x4 on a ford ranger 98


If it is trying to kick in, then the fuse is not bad. There is a control box behind the left jump seat, if you have a extended cab, if not it may be behind the seat on the drivers side. This box should have a white or black button on the side. Push this button with the key on and it should reset the box. The 4x4 can get out of synch and it won;t work.
I hope this is helpful Good Luck

We have a 2005 Ford Ranger Supercab. While driving the bakkie starts to shake, as if it gets a speed wobble. We have spoken to many other owners of Ford Supercabs and double cabs and it seems as if there...


The speed wobble problem is serious on my vehicle.It is so bad at times if you hit a certain angle or speed ration on certain roads that it feels as if the vehicle wants to throw you out of the cockpit.I have spent R15 000 up to date on it also through Ford's good advice and have now given it back to Ford to resolve, The same day 3 other vehicles got taken in.I say everyone with a Ford Ranger cab should take it in and park their vehicles in the entrance of the workshop and walk away with the keys . They will soon get the message that it is their problem and not the drivers problem.

Dash light on a 1999 Ford Ranger


You have to remove the instrument cluster in order to replace the bulbs. This will include removing the knee panel under the steering wheel, the black trim piece in front of the instrument cluster, and possibly the trim and vents surrounding the radio, depending where the screws are located.

Some of the bulb holders may have notched the foil contacts on the board and the bulbs won't light after they are replaced. If that happens, you'll need to bend the tabs on the bulb holder slightly and use your finger nail to flatten out the dent in the foil.

It's not a quick fix, so you may want a dealer to service it. I suggest replacing your bulbs with LED's for longer life.

1994 ford ranger extended cab 6 cyl fuel injected 2 wheel drive automatic


This year of ranger had a few flaws, In one case, a break power booster was robbing the vacumm, you can test this by plugging it off and seeing the differance, but you will have limited brakes. This model year had a problem with a vacuum leak on the manifold. You can check these in many ways, but please don't use starting fluid. The rear of the manifold usually on the drivers side where it seals to the block.
Also, in 2 other cases a cracked head has gave me the same problem. It is caused from a loss of vacuum.
