Question about 1996 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Ok you already know this fuse is for the starter relay and the anti-theft system, so lets look at those components, the fuse powers the starter replay, this relay is the one that is round and the red battery positive cable goes to it and then out of it to the starter solenoid on the starter motor, n this relay there is a small wire that just slips on and off a threaded terminal (marked with an "S"), unplug that, then turn the ignition crank and hold it there (u will need another person here), with a test light or DC Volt meter you should have 12 volts at the wire you took off the starter relay, while the ignition key is held in engine crank position, if u do have 12 volts at that wire then the relay is defective.here is a picture and price with part number.

Hello. You have a short circuit which is causing your fuse to blow repeatedly because it is not properly going to ground. Start with your battery terminals and cables. Take them apart, and clean them all up with emery cloth. Then go to the other end of each cable, disconnect, clean, reconnect. That alone may solve your problem.
If these actions do not solve your problem consider calling a local autoelectric shop and have them scan your electrical system.
Good luck with it. Regards, Joe

Check the fuel pump to see if it is coming on,this is ths most likely cause,fuel pump relay,or the fuel pump has gone out.Check the relay for the fuel pump,and see if the fuel pump pressure is up to spects.IIf all this checks out,start checking under the hood for wires that mayhave been broken,or grounded out on the engine and firewall.Unplug the alternator,to see if the fuse will still blow,if the alternator has shorted,it will cause this also.
