Not sure about the '78 Ranger, but I have a 1977 F150 and the backup light/neutral safety switch is located on the transmission with the linkage. You use a #43 drill bit to make the adjustments. Hope this helped and best wishes.

97 Ford Ranger lights and Eng. Problems


You are probably correct in your assumption even though it does seem unlikely - your description indicates a possible short between the running/parking lights and the engine management system or perhaps between the those and the reverse lights.

These are circuits that should have little relationship between them. It could be worth checking the tail lights/bulbs/wiring/grounds.

If nothing obvious seems wrong it would be wise to check the relationship between those circuits with a wiring diagram. Experience tells me the fault is likely to be simple and perhaps ground-related...

Good luck!

Removal of head light assy 1989 ford ranger.


Hello,

To remove the front head light please follow the steps below:
  1. Place the Ford Ranger in "Park." Turn the engine off. Turn the headlights off. Remove the key from the ignition. Allow the truck to cool for about 20 minutes.
  2. Open the hood of the vehicle. Locate the two retainer pins on the headlight assembly of the light that needs to be replaced. Pry the retainer pins open with your finger. This releases the headlight assembly from the Ranger.
  3. Pull the headlight assembly forward. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the assembly by hand. Rotate the retaining ring counterclockwise and slide it off the plastic bulb base.
  4. Pull the burned out bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Discard the used bulb. Insert a replacement bulb into the headlight assembly and push it straight into the socket until it clicks into place. Slide the retaining ring around the bulb and rotate it clockwise to secure it.
  5. Plug the electrical connector into the back of the unit. Slide the headlight assembly back into the Ranger. Push the retaining pins back down to secure the headlight assembly.
Hope this helped. thank You for using FixYa!!!
