One of several possibilities. The first is one is one that I have seen at weddings and other celebrations. A friend thinking it is funny will put a wire hooking the two systems together so when the lights go on, the horn honks. That being said, I would look at the wiring to make sure the did not melt together is they are close to a heat source. Also a possibility, the clock spring in the steering column may be shorting. The combination switch could also be problematic.

Are you getting power to the inertia switch? I would check the fuse and relay for the fuel pump.

the inertia switch is only supposed to trip in the event of impact, so unless you are off roading or otherwise jolting the vehicle - the switch may be failing.....

Fuse #20 is refer at Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) module, Brake-shift interlock, Speed control module, Back-up lamps, Overdrive cancel switch, Electronic flasher (turn/hazard), according with the 2004 Ford Ranger Owner Guide.

You will need to check and test all the circuits involved in this point, siwtches, sockets and wires; since this fuse is blowing constantly, one short is located in some circuit. I will disconnect all those components one at a time and road test.

Keep us updated.

Surge usually means its getting extra air (VACUUM) from somewhere, usually a vacuum hose has come loose or developed a hole or crack letting extra air into the engine.

Make sure the belt is tight. You can try spraying some belt conditioner on the ribbed side with the engine running. It can also be pulley bearings--especially the idler. Try spraying a little oil on the accessory bearings with the engine running. If the chirping stops where you spray, replace that part.

you should go and find an accredited service shop as the mechanic that advised you on new head is touching your wallet most misfires are from faulty injectors and in many instances a quality injector cleaner will fix the problem

Make sure your system is charged properly. Also make sure your cooling system is properly clean and filled up to max levels. Sometimes low freon or old cooling system fluid will cause a delay in the A/C to work. Also chech to see if there is any black powder around your A/C clutch, if so, this is a sign that the system is about to go out of service. You can get a great deal on the part from Amazon.

The shop saying there was a Freon leak should have other ways to diagnose a leak other than a dye test. If they charge it & it leaks out.......YOU BOUGHT IT. The diag should be done in one visit.
