Hi!!
You just need to jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts store to have a FREE Starting and Charging system test.
What your battery have is 13.5 volts, enough to turn headlight and accessories on but not enough amps to crank the engine.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

1989 Ford Ranger. Wont start. Just clicks. Dome light works. Other lights don't. Any suggestions?


Sounds like flat or faulty battery if the main lights don't work. The dome light is only 5 amps and will light on about 10 volts. Starter needs 13 volts and 160 amps. First thing to do is put the battery onto charge on a 6 amp charger.

Once the battery is charged up, try it and if that doesn't work, check fuses and then the starter and solenoid.

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

My battery dies but it checks ok 12 volt when the car is off and between 13 and 14 when on but if it sits for a few hours it wont even turn over and all the lights just start to flash


Sounds like a current drain, probably something you can't see. Start by removeing the glovebox light & boot light. If still happens hook an amp metere up between the batry terminal & batry wire with key off & check if there is any drain. Note: you will need your radio code if your radio is security radio

Wont start


Check startermotor.
Possibly brushes are worn down close to end limit so they don't make decent contact on comutator when you try starting. Also the solinoide could be faulty

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.
