Hi. My ford escort 97 lx wagon transmission is not shifting anymore it is stuck in first gear(althought if i put it in neutral while driving and switch back to drive it picks up for a few seconds...) and...


My brothers 2000 ford ranger the fuse went out to the speed sensor. I change the speed sensor because it did not shift out of 1st gear and the speedometer stopped working. I then found out the fuse was missing in the fuse panel. My brother could not tell where the fuse went but when I put a fuse in it started shifting and the speedometer started working. everything was good. You should have a code if it is the speed sensor.

2001 ranger wont start after sitting


check the fuel pump and see is working properly, if the pump is good than the problems will be the crank sensor is faulty. what crank sensor does it sense the turning of the flywheel and it send a single to ecu, and ecu send a flow of power to turn on the fuel pump as long it sense the flywheel turning.

Speedometer and odometer stopped working


This sounds like it could possibly be a short under the dash. I would check all the wiring harnesses under the dash. Have you reset the main computer to see if this will solve a code issue? I was told that the computer can cause communication problems. You remove the neutral cable from the battery first then the hot side. Leave off for a few minutes and then replace the battery cables. Good luck, I have done a lot to my own ranger as well.

Do a basic check of the ignition system if you have a cap and rotor take the cap off and take a look.make sure the coil wire is not burnt,remove it and look.but more than likely the ignition control module is bad.you can scan the computer for codes and that might get you closer.hope it works have a good day DB

The dashboard


You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.

1996 ford ranger odometer / trip stopped working


Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!
