I have a 2005 Ford ranger 3.0 v6 that has been stalling when driving and the inertia switch has been popped but I cant seem to find one online for a replacement part. Does the 04 switch fit it?

The replacement kits (includes Conversion Kit. Includes Switch And Bracket, Cowl Trim Door, Instruction Sheet) are the same for 2004 & 2005 models. Since it includes the trim, the kits are sold by the interior color. Ford discontinued just the switch (made a change) some time back. Ford OEM auto parts Motorcraft filters license plates

How to check interia switch

Ford uses a simple switch with a weight inside. It is either on or off which can be tested with a meter. If it is often tripped when going over bumps or other vibrations, I would replace it.

I own a 2004 Ford Ranger Supercab and cannot locate a switch to turn on dome light. Is there even one for the dome light without opening the doors?

if you turn the headlight/dimmer switch all the way to the left this should turn on the dome light. ( or maybe it is all the way to the right - sorry it has been 5 years since I owned my ford ranger ) --- but it is one way or the other and you should feel a click in the switch when it engages.

Ford ranger 2004 there is no elect.going to pump. I changed the inertia switch --pump still not running.what should I do next ?

Did you check the relay? Power goes from ignition switch to relay to pump. Where B+ stops is your problem.
Run a pair of jumper wire from battery to pump just to see if pump works. If it buzzes and runs its ok.
Then you definately know its something in the control circuit.

1998 ford raner not getting any fire

If it's not getting fuel check the interia switch. There is a label under you hood that explains "If vehicle fails to start". The switch is on the passenger side kicker panel behind it. If it accidently getting kicked by a passenger it can turn the fuel pump off. Just check it happens all the time to Ford owners.
