This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Check all fuses first.
what transmission>?
jumper cable starts, use them to start car.
this tells you more in 1 step than anything,
if jumper to other running car ,starts your car, that means
your battery is bad, or weak or discharged.
if jumper cables starts fail check out the tricks here.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

did you turn the key fully to towards the dash? take the steering wheel left and right slowely and at the same time turn the key back and forth several times slowly. there is a detent inside the steering column that allows you to ingage the neutral safety switch. this should help.....please rate this thanks.
