Did you take the old solenoid off? By the way, did you know it is usually cheaper to buy the starter with the solenoid attached than to just buy a solenoid? On older models the solenoid is on the firewall, two wires will go on the end of the starter, also I believe it is two wires that go to solenoid. I don't know how to add pictures to this post, but, just Google.....replace starter and solenoid on 2000 Ford Ranger.

SOURCE: 94 Ford Ranger won't start. Replaced starter and

To start, why did you replace the starter? Was it bad? Did you have it checked? Is the new one good? And what is the battery reading in Volts? Does it click at all, crank at all? Did you check the fusible link? Follow the hot wire from the battery to the link, a giant fuse type thing, check it out. Is the ground wire from the battery bolted to the frame or body, and engine? Is the starter connected right? Are the terminals on the battery posts squeaky clean? they have to be or it won't do anything. Check the electrolyte fluid and see what the gravity of each cell is. The battery with one weak cell is a dead duck. The voltage should be at 13.5 at all times. The posts have got to be clean and tight, the starter should at least click. Do you have an anti-theft device somewhere in there you forgot about? Check it out. Hope this helps.

Ford ranger 1998 new starter wont stop running

If I didn't answer this already there's a problem with new solenoids on the new starters. Double check your work for the connection from positive Battery cable to Starter solenoid or the above.

Need a diagram of wiring for starter solenoid/1992/ford/ranger

Not much to the solenoid, but I'll attach a wiring schematic for 3.0 and 4.0. Be careful not to touch the two post together on the solenoid or it will start right up on you! One lead goes directly to the starter and the other goes to the positive lead on the battery. Good luck.

Fuse# 24 blows on 95 ford ranger every time turn ignition switch

There is a starter relay in the circuit in addition to the starter solenoid.
If you have replaced the components, I would guess the problem is in the harness or a connector.

2006 ranger just clicks wont turn over

Did your starter have the Solenoid on it or is yours separate and mounted on the drivers side fender under the hood? The Red wire from the battery will go to the solenoid, then continue on down to the starter. It is possible that this part is faulty.

Starter stays engaged

it's a good chance that the solenoid on the fender is shorting and is the problem. it is hard wired to the battery so even if the key is off the voltage still flows to the solenoid. replace the solenoid on the fender. this is where most fords have them iit should be on the passenger side fender well. please rate this...thanks
