Re: my 2232gw started flashing, as if the starter is
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net

Starter fluid won't work if the starter won't turn the engine over.
Get the battery load tested...it may not have enough juice to start the truck but have enough to light up the lights
check your fuses and battery connections at the starter. Is the anti theft light flashing? If it is that's your problem. Wait 10 minutes insert the key...wait for the theft light to go out before trying to start.
if that doesn't work you will need to get the starter checked...which means you will have to take it off.
Allways read about the serial number before flashing firmware or the wrong firmware revision was loaded for this model ?
firmware chip replace by new or lend a chip with an appropriate revision start and create a hot-swap by reinserting the old chip and re-flash the correct firmware in it, because he will likely continue to boot black
Turn the key to the run position. Check the dash to see if the security light is flashing. If it is, leave the key in the on position till the light stops flashing. (this may take ten minutes) When the light stops flashing, turn the key to the off position. Then start the car. Make sure the head lights are turned off so that you do not kill the battery.
Voltage drop? I'm guessing you don't have a voltmeter, so turn on the headlights and observe them as someone tries to start the truck. If the lights go out, bad connection at battery, starter, or ground. If the lights get dim, probably the starter-it's drawing power, just not working. If the lights don't change, check for power going to the starter solenoid on the small wire on the starter; voltmeter or test light, check if the small wire to the solenoid has power when key is held in start position-in crank position. There should be battery voltage there when the key is turned to crank. If so, the starter or solenoid is bad. If no power there to solenoid, power is lost somewhere between ignition switch and the starter wire.
Check Engine Light flashing when accelerating ,severe engine misfire . Something in the ignition system is breaking down under a load . If the starter engages an spins the engine when you turn the key to start an it doesn't start an run , it has no spark or fuel pressure . If you don't know this or how to diagnose .suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Pull two plug wires off the top of the same coil an crank the engine , if you do not see a spark jump from one coil tower to the other you have an ignition system problem . ignition module or crankshaft position sensor
You need to open it up and inspect the inside for bad capacitors (bulging top/seal, leaking liquid), inverter/power supply circuits, can be bad lamps, transformers, etc. Post back what you see inside, pictures will help a lot. See pictures I posted here on failed monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
A FORD MACHANIC HAS TOLD ME THAT IN FACT THE KEY HAS TO BE RECODED. MY SITUATION IS EXACTLY THE SAME. HE SAID TO RECODE THE KEY I HAD TO TURN THE IGNITION TO THE RUN POSITION, THE SECURITY LIGHT ON THE DASH WILL FLASH RAPIDLY AND CONTINUE TO FLASH FOR 15 MINUTES . WITHIN FIVE MINUTES AFTER THE LIGHT STOPS FLASHING I MUST TURN OFF THE IGNITION FOR ONE SECOND AND TURN IMMEDIATLY BACK TO THE RUN POSITION FOR 15 MORE MINUTES. THE LIGHT WILL GO OFF AGAIN . WITHIN 5 MIN. I MUST TURN OFF THE IGNITION FOR ONE SECOND AND TURN BACK TU RUNNING POSITION. 15 MINUTES LATER REPEAT STEPS AGAIN AND THE KEY WILL BE REPROGRAMMED, AND STSRT THE CAR. GOOD LUCK MY CONTACT IS A FORD MASTER MECHANIC.
Have the battery load tested. it dosen't take much power to operate lights and under load, the battery may have enough volts but not enough amps to turn the starter. If battery checks good with load test, check the starter for excessive draw and check all connections at battery, starter and block ground.
make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?
if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.
start the ranger with a test check the power at the starter when you start it on the starter the big wire always power the little one supposed to have power when you start the truck if you have no power go at the cluch there a switch check it if power go thrue or jump it with a wire let me know pierre
