Radio quits when taken out of park or neutral


Sounds like the physical movement of the linkage is pulling or rubbing the harness. Get up under the dash and see how the harness is located.

Location of 4 wheel drive relay on 98 ford ranger


All the relays are under the hood on these rangers, but you problem may be with the control box behind the jump seat on the drivers side. You may have to remove the jump seat to get to it. Once there, the box will have a white,grey or black button on it. Usually on the end where the red light is, Turn the key on and press this button and hold for 5 seconds. This puts the 4 wheel drive shift motor back in sequence. Now without starting the engine and the trans in park if auto and neutral if standard park break set, try the to shift in to 4 high, if you can hear the shift motor run and shift the gears in the transfer case, try 4 low, you should hear the same motion in the transfer case, if so you have solved your problem. If not you may have to move on to the connector on the transfer case, you may have to unplug the connector and look at the pins and socket, if they look corroded, clean and apply some dielectric grease to the pins and the socket and plug back in. Try the 4 High and 4 low again. If it works, great, if not you may have a bad shift motor.
Good luck.

Wont shift from park


Check to see if brake lights work. The safety system uses a switch on the top of the brake pedal lever to prevent shifting out of Park without putting your foot on the brake.

If you lose the signal from this switch, it will not come out of Drive. Often the drivers' foot hits and moves or breaks this switch. Look under your dash to inspect this part.

Once you get the brake lights working, it should shift out of Park.

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?


There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.

1994 Ford Ranger won't shift into drive


In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.
