If I am correct that vehicle uses a speedo cable that goes from the instrument cluster to the transmission.
If your speedo is not woorking you may have a bad cable or gear which is on the end of the cable and can be accessed by removing cable from tranny which is held in by a bolt and clip.
If your speedo is working but your odometer is not than you have a problem in the cluster itself.
You can have it repaired at a certified speedo shop or replace it with junkyard unit.

Check the battery voltage when the vehicle running on idle, it must between 13-15 volt.
Check the battery voltage on full electricity load (turn on headlight, A/C, radio, wiper), it must between 12,6-13,8 V, If the voltage under 12V, check the radiator fan and radio/power amplier

Unless you are talking about a timing chain that you replaced, which you just follow the timing marks...they can be gotten out of a shop manual; the computer takes care of the timing for you. It counts the pulses off of the cam, or crank sensor and refers it back and the computer while in close loop if everything is working right, it handles the rest. Isn't that neat.

Any job recently there? it's possible that the wires are crossed somewhere as the dome light and 3rd brake light are on the same harness. It could be that the third brake light is grounding out when it lights up, causing the dome light to come on.

Keep us updated.

Don't do this with your truck in gear but if you can get the engine to drop down closer to a normal idle by tapping the accelerator pedal, it is probably just a case of dry linkage under the hood. Use a lubricating spray (no WD-40, it evaporates) on the linkage you see moving when the accelerator pedal is moved. A weak return spring can cause this too but is a less common problem.

1996 Ford Ranger , I think not, the switch has a relay in the power juction box the only module I know about is the pulse module, If its not the switch and you need this part every salvage yard has this (its rare that these ever fails)

Recheck the fuel pressure. I have replaced them after one day. Most new ones I replaced inbetween 30 to 60 days. Chinese ****. Even OEM can go bad, but I have replaced more new pumps from autozone than anywhere else. Advance is next.

There could be a few problems you can check into. I would check the fuel cut off switch first. It's a little hard to find and a flash light would be helpful. In your vehicle since it says (See pictures below) on the passenger side it is natural to look on the right "kick" panel but where it is in your vehicle, if you follow the carpet up towards underneath the dash about a foot or so from the "kick" panel just above the carpet you will see it. There is a picture below of what it looks like for you. Also you could have either a blown fuse for the anti theft/fuel system which is located in the power distribution box in the engine compartment up by the brake master cylinder. It should be a 20 amp fuse. In that same box is a fuel pump relay that you can feel if it "Clicks" if you have someone turn the key on while you have your finger on it to feel if it does click. I also provided you witha diagram as to where those are located at in the box. I hope this helps and good luck. Here are all your pictures:

I would replace the alternator. The test might of proved it was ok but that just checks to make sure its putting out the amperage its rated at. Sounds like its shorted internally and putting out full amps all the time.

here is a picture, but u need a pressure bleeder to *** this. The bleeder is the little tube with the cap off to the side.

Sure, no problem. For safety sake, disconnect battery so it doesn't get "bumped" via starter. And be sure to NOT move cam or crank.
