401 might have been caused by 125. The exhaust gas recirc is likely to be inefficient or not working until the engine is at working temperature. PO125 is the engine not reaching operating temperature.

Clearly the fault(s) are intermittent or borderline. The engine might not be warming up correctly or there might be a sensor or wiring fault.

Make a start by checking the thermostat...

Have your fuel pump pressure and your fuel filter checked by a mechanic. Sounds like fuel starvation!

Check to make sure the safety switches are engaging. One on the clutch, one in the shifter and/or transmission.

With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

You have a code 25 which is a side curtain air bag passenger side. Most likely the connection disconnect the airbag and reconnect it. First disconnect the battery

1998 Ford Ranger... | Answered on Oct 28, 2015


This code is telling you of an ECS module fault.
An ECS module fault could be caused by:

- the internal accelerometer not operating properly.
- the backup power supply not operating properly.
- an internal module circuit fault detected.
- a microcontroller RAM/ROM/EEPROM fault.

Before doing any of the above, disconnect the vehicles battery and Remove the main connection off of the ECS and clean with electrical connection cleaner, then reinstall, then check the connectors and wires under the seats - these fail all the time.
After checking and cleaning reconnect battery.
