SOURCE: Can I reset my anti theft device by using one key

Yeah, put the first key in and let the anti-theft light go completly out (about ten secs), take that key out and do the same with the second key. Take it out and start it with the first key. Maybe this will trick the system , hope this helps.

How to locate and check fuel pump on 03 ford ranger edge Fx4 4.0

Locating the fuel pump is easy, it's in the fuel tank. Testing it however, is a different story. To test it "by the book" requires a scanner that can access and run "Output Test Mode" diagnostics on your engine computer, a fuel pressure gauge, and a digital volt-ohm meter.

If your engine will not start and run, you can do this to see if maybe it is the fuel pump:
First pull one of the spark plug wires to see if you have spark while someone cranks the engine for you. If there is spark, continue with these instructions. If there is no spark, close this thread out and start a new one for "2003 Ford ranger has no spark" Be sure and say also which engine your Ranger is equipped with.

Find the fuel pump relay in the under-hood fuse and relay center. The lid on the fuse box only has numbers. Your owners manual will tell you which number is the fuel pump relay. Feel the relay with your fingers while someone turns the ignition switch to the "run" position. You should feel the relay "click" then about 2 seconds later, you should feel it click again. If this is doing this, then chances are that your fuel pump is bad. (we are assuming here that you had spark above.) This is not a complete or "foolproof" test by any means, but it is probably 85% accurate for "Cranks, Won't Start" problems.

My '99 Ford Ranger (while on cruise control) just shut off while I was driving. Electronics work but engine shut off. Engine turns over but doesn't start up. Any ideas?

2 things to do. Listen at the tank for the fuel pump to humm for 5 seconds when you turn the key to ON.

2. Spray some starting fluid into the throttle body and see if it starts for a few seconds then. If yes, it is probably the pump, slim chance it's the fuel pump relay.

My 2001 ford ranger is hard to start turn the key for 5 seconds let off turn again and starts right up let it sit for 15 to 29 min and hard to start again changed injectors plugs and coil pack runs better...

sounds like fuel pressure bleeding off. Bad fuel pump or bad pressure regulator on fuel rail. Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on? do this twice, 30 deconds apart and see if it starts ok.

3.0 6cyl 01 ranger - cranks but will not start. checked one of the plugs for spark and was okay. depressed schrader valve on fuel supply line while cranking engine and no gas came out. I believe the fuel...

check the fuel filter to see it that is plugged up. When turning the ignition key to on only without trying to start the engine you can hear the fuel pump running for a few seconds if working. If not the pump is bad

Truck Won't Start At All

before replacing the starter get a volt meter and test the voltage coming out of the voltage regulator which the power comes from the battery to the regulator down to the starter also make sure all wires on the starter are clean and what I mean is from rust because I had an f150 that did the same thing
