Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1999 Ford Ranger radio is dead. Any ideas?

A friend had this 1999 Ford Ranger truck & the radio worked while he had it.He gave it to me & it worked for me but I don't always use the radio so didn't know the radio was dead til I tried to turn it on today. There is no light or anything when you try to turn it on. I changed the 2 fuses but nothing happened. Any ideas? It appears to be the original radio/cassette player. Everything else electrical seems ok. The door ajar light will come on for no reason sometimes but then it goes off on its own. It did that when the radio was working so I don't think that matters.

Sounds a lot like it's been under water.
I found unplugging things 1 at a time and reconnecting shaves the corrosion off. Check the Earth wire as well. Door sensor sounds like it's slightly out of alignment.

SOURCE: Ford ranger 1998 the door ajar wont turn off and the dome light isnt turning on

Spray inside the center door latch with WD40 or silicone lubricant. You might have to remove or partically remove the plastic shield cover the opening. It's the part the door latches too, spray all around inside there and that should allow the switch to release. the switch either dries out or gets dirty and sticks, the spay will loosen and clean it.

SOURCE: Door Ajar light and dinger, interior lights stay on, looking for a fuse diagram.

It drove me nuts too. Fortunately, the solution is both cheap and simple. There is a latch mechanism in each side of the tailgate which gets all filled with dirt and slime.The latch jaws start to stick and dont move far enough to close the door ajar switch inside the tailgate Spray each latch generously with WD40, wipe the mechanisms off with a rag, close the tailgate, open the tailgate and repeat the cleaning several times. As soon as you get everything freed up, the switch will be able to report that the tailgate is closed and the problems will be gone. If you want, afterwards you can spray a little lithium grease on the latches to keep things running smooth. You may need to use a screwdriver to completely pry open the jaws in conjunction with opening the tailgate handle to get them to open fully while you are washing and wiping them off. Now's a real good time to lubricate all the door hinges and latches including the sliding door. May as well put some oil on the hood hinges and hood latch too.It's not impossible to keep Fords on the road....just tricky......very tricky.

You should have a couple of fusable links located at the battery or starter solenoid. Check to make sure they have a good connection. "wires hooked to positive side"

2000 Ford Ranger is killing alternators immediately after install


the best way to test an alternator is with a load test-partstores dont do that--battery may still have a bad cell even tho it tested good--an alternator can burn up charging a completely dead batt--make sure batt reads at 12.6volts and no less-----if it reads say at 12.3 its only 50% charged!

Can bleed my brakes 1999 ford ranger 4x4


You will need a friend to help. Pick up an extra bottle of brake fluid that your vehicle manufacturer recommends. Open the bleed valve on the closest brake first. Have your friend gently push the brake pedal until fluid comes out bleed valve. Tighten bleed valve. Check your brake fluid tank and top up as needed. Work your way around the vehicle repeating this procedure.
