    We have a 2004 Ford Ranger Edge. Went into the store, came out after just a few minutes and the truck wouldn't start. No power, no lights, nothing. It won't even try to turn over. It's not the batter or the starter. ????

I had the same problem and figured out that i was using my spare key and for some reason the spare they gave me didnt work in the ignition bc it was a programmed key. try and find the original key if you do not have it. otherwise you might have to get a new one from the dealership. :( $$$

94 f 350 with a 460, get a click when turn the key. tryed jumping it still just get a click.

This sounds like a bad starter solenoid, unless you mean you bypassed the solenoid when you jumped it. If you just boosted the power at the battery, the solenoid could still be bad.

1999 ford ranger wont start had problem with key would rotate truck would start now just wont start

Hey Bill. It could be so many things and any advice without seeing it is just a guess. Could be starter,ignition switch,fuel pump and on and on. if it does nothing when jumping not even turning over then it very well may be the battery or starter. Hope this helps some and good luck.

Battery good won't turn over

Its probably a starter or starter relay. try tapping lightly on the side of the starter as someone turns the key. if it starts its the starter. if you dont hear a click when turning the key its probably a starter relay. just in case though, if you havent already, check the fuses.

I have a 2004 ford ranger. It will not start. it does not turn over. The battery is fully charged. All i get is a click when trying to start it.

The solenoid mounted on the starter is shorted out. It can be replaced separetely or it will come on a rebuilt starter as well

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new alternator but car won't start, it just clicks?

the clicks are a signature of a bad battery, since your is new, it probally is not bad, i would try to jump the car with cables, even though your battery is new, you dont know how long is sat ont he shelf before you took it home, may be weak, 1 good jump to get the motor going and the alternator will charge it right up so wont have to so it again....

the only other thing is the starting system left to look at if that dont work is the starter, try banging on it a little with a hammer, not to hard though, as someone turns the key, this will sometime free up a locked up solinoid.

Good Luck

87 ranger with a 90 motor. high pitched noise when i try to turn it over.

Did you get the right starter? Did you put the starter straight? Did you lock the screw evenly? where this noise from?You mentioned the noise like high pitch grinding noise, is it from the starter area or flying wheel?
