I ran out of gas in my 05 Ford Ranger yesterday and since it wont start. I tried the relay switch by the passenger feet... Any help please??

I would recommend you change the fuel filter and then see if it will start with at last 3 gallon of fuel in the tank. If it still will not start try using some spray starter fluid to get it going.

Ford galaxy has total power loss and we are baffled!!!

it doesnt sound like your coil pack has gone has the 98 galaxy has 2 and if 1 was to go you would get irregular engine running.
If you have a 2.3 dohc galaxy there is no timing belt or cam belt, the dohc uses timing chains (it has on mine).
It is a posibility that your cam belt has snapped on other engines.
If the cam belt had snapped there is a chance that the engine would not turn over due to the valves getting in the way of the pistons.
The only thing ive ever seen this fault happen on the galaxy is from the ecu. If you turn the ignition off and on 15 times this usually resets the faults on the ecu and you might beable to start it.
Other options you may wish to try out are to see if there is a spark from your plugs.
It could be as simple as a blown fuse so check all your fuses.
The oil warning light indicates you have no oil pressure (comes on when engine off and ignition on) battery light means that ignition is on but alternator fault if engine running and if not running no charge fom alternator to battery.
My guess at your symptons are your fuel pump has broke which stalled your engine causing the lights to come on or if you have run the tank to almost empty that the sludge has blocked a fuel line or the fuel filter.
here is what i would check:
1, check for a spark from any plug,
2, if i have a spark then its most probably lack of fuel.
3, if no spark get coils tested and check for blown fuses.
4, change fuel filter.
5, get fuel pump checked out.

i hope this helps if you need any help in how to check these things just send a comment and il check the haynes manual and send you instructons.

I have a 91 has the 2.3 ran fine then stopped one day when iwas leavin the house...i havent been able to get it to start unless...i spray starting fluid into the intake...ive changed...

i dont think you car wants to leave your house.... maybe your injectors are bad, if the chamber is getting too much fuel you could be flooding it, and if that gas gets past your rings you have bigger problems
