Question about 1995 Ford Ranger Supercab

1 Answer

My 95 ford ranger won't start. it's a manual transmission with 227,000 miles on it. We've replaced the solenoid, the battery, and the starter and alternator are both working fine. When we try to start it, nothing happens, it doesn't even click anymore. We're trying to replace the neutral safety switch and the ignition switch, but we can't find either. Or could the problem be something else entirely?

With a manual tranny, check the clutch pedal position sensor/switch. It should be activated by the clutch pedal arm. So follow the clutch pedal arm up under the dash to find it.
You need to lower steering column to get at the ignition switch. I'm not talking about the key cylinder.
Any testing make sure the tranny is out of gear and functional parking brake is set. I guess you have already done some testing? Is there a security system?
If you need wiring diagram, holler.

Good day;
Have you have this problem before? If you had the battery change a month ago the first place that I would look at is to make sure that your battery cables are on proper. I would remove the cables from the battery and put them back on and make sure that they are nice and tight. Let me know how you make out with this.

Cheers.

Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: I Starting problem...

if you notice this van should have a statrer solenoid on the fender as well as on the starter, clean the body of the solenoid on the fender area and make sure that the ground cable is secure and tight do not wiggle which is just making it loose if it is so go under the vehicle and make sure that the cable is tight

Did you clean the cables when you changed the battery?

I'd trace the wires connecting your alternator and battery and make sure they are "healthy" and securely fastened. Then, I'd check the wires connecting your battery and starter. Again, make sure the wires are securely fastened and appear clean.

The starter and solenoid are one unit for this vehicle.

Hope this helps and good luck!

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.
