Question about Ford Ranger

1 Answer

I have a 1986 Ford Ranger. It fires but as soon as I release the key it dies. I do not have dash idiot lights or radio when the key is in the accessories position. The truck will continue to run as long as I hold the key over to the start position but dies as soon as I let go of the key.
