Question about Ford Ranger
Hello, With good Comprehensive Auto Insurance you can probably get this fixed under fire coverage. It is worth asking about if you have that type of Insurance and most people do not realize that problems like this are covered even if the vehicle does not burn in flames.
If you can not get the Insurance coverage then you need replace the fuse box and wiring. Your best bet is to try to get a wiring harness out of a Salvage yard. Most of the time the wire loom is connected in big sections. So it may take several cars before you can make 1 whole harness.
You did not put the Year or Model of your car in with your request. If you have a onboard computer, your dash gauge grid, and many more parts may be bad. Usually the cause of the problem will be burnt end to end. It is really a matter of "Did the fuse let go fast enough?". And it is possible to make improper connections through the melting process which can completely bypass the safety feature of the fuse.
If you wind up doing this yourself, get a good Ohmmeter. I have tried Signal tracers which make a signal in a wire and have a listening device to track them. Its available at Home Depot and does not work well on wires that are tighty bunched. I have used one on a Cabin Cruiser and thats when I found out about tightly bunched wires.
I hope my solution is very helpful in getting this fixed. I know what you are going through as I had a car lite up on me while driving.
