If it is a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. If it is several clicks in succession, the battery may be low or there may be a loose cable. ---------- also try this :-- Please make sure the battery is fully charged before doing this test! Also make sure all the connections on the starter, battery and cable ends are tight and clean! this is important!! This won't be fun to test but it will tell you if the starter is good or not. Crawl under the car. (Make sure you use the proper jacks and jack stands!) find the end of the starter (not the end that is attached to the bell housing) and find the solenoid switch. it should have 3 bolts on it. Two large ones and a small one. The top large wire should be the positive battery cable, the bottom large wire should go into the starter and the small wire should be from the ignition switch. Take a wire and hold it to the top large wire on the solenoid. (be careful of the other end of that wire when you have it connected to the top large wire of the solenoid! don't ground this wire. it will turn out badly. take the other end of the wire and touch it to the small bolt on the solenoid end. If the starter is working, the solenoid should engage and the starter will turn. If this happens it is most likely the ignition switch. If the starter doesn't turn, the starter could be bad. ==== Starter Relay Test
Place transmission in Park.
Apply parking brake.
Check for battery voltage between starter relay battery terminal and ground.
Connect jumper wire on starter relay between battery and ignition terminals.
If engine does not crank, connect a second jumper wire to starter relay between ground terminal and good ground and repeat test.
If engine cranks in step 3, transmission linkage is misadjusted or neutral safety switch is defective.
If engine does not crank in step 3, starter relay is defective.
Follow this step by step and you will pinpoint the problem.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Suggest you look at battery 1st Remove Earth cable normally + sign, check the cable connection to the battery is clean inside & wire brush the battery where the cable fits see if that is your problem, only other thing is the battery no longer holding it's charge IE: you may need new battery. Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

My 1999 ford ranger 3.0 flex fuel my 4x4 dont work the 4x4 hi and lo lights blink 6 times every 2 mins and i have a new shift motor on the truck idk why it wont go into 4x4 dosent ven make a noise please...


Okay, there are a few reasons that this could happen, one being the selector motor which you have replaced so lets go to the next thing which is the fuse, when the motor goes bad it will blow fuse sometimes so check all fuses even under the hood fuse box, i think its a 20 amp fuse but test all of them.

The next problem could be a bad ground, run a new ground wire from the front diff to the frame of the truck.

try these tests and let me know the out come then we can move on, good day, also there is a lot of info on this problem on the web, type in 1999 ranger blinking 4x4 lights, good day

After getting a jump-start, my entire radio/cd player went out in my 2000 ford ranger. It's a stock Ford unit. Won't come back on. Is it a fuse?


it sounds like it could be a fuse. double check in your owners manual where the fuse is located and double check if there is more than one fuse for the radio or it may have a fuse for the amplifier too.

I have a 1994 ford ranger 4x4. I can start it but i have no interior lights, power to the stereo, turn/hazard lights, but have brake and dashboard lights. no fuses are blown.


I think you'll have to revisit the fuse box (there may be more than one 1 ) The problem you describe are linked circuits and a thorough inspection of the fuse box is needed. Good luck

Check your operator's manual. Make sure any and all fuses that have anything to do with the affected items are not blown and are working properly. If you can; check for loose fuse connections or wires. Hope this helps. God bless!

OD light flashes .


Sounds like the transmission fluid is getting too viscus. Might want to check it, or replace it. I would just get the trans fluid replaced. Costs 80 dollars or can dIY for 25-30$
