2008 Ford ranger Won't start or crank at key switch. Any suggestions?

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. The diagram is for starter motor. Not only check the fuses, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuits. You have a starter relay, You could, for testing, unplug the relay, use proper jumper wire on load side of relay, the load side is terminal 87 and 30. It should crank the engine. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
Your security system says, starter motor disable. By using the jumper, your bypassing that for testing. I don't know what testing you've done?

1999 Ford ranger 4x4 3.0 LITER mind of it's own when wants to start. All lights come on as the should won't CRANK any suggestions tried fuses still n9 luck?

Rock it back and forth with pressure in either direction on gear selector. Manual or auto can have a safety switch after 1991. If sensor fails to detect park or neutral, no start.

What fuse do I replace for my electric windows in my 1999 4x4 ford ranger

Click on the link.
You can see the fuses. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite and check voltage on fuse circuit, hot all the time. Could be problem with relay or relay control. Could be other issues like your master switch? I couldn't tell you what is going on w/o testing?

I need diagrams for the fuse boxes in the dash and engine compartment so I can find the fuse/relay I need to replace. My dash lights, tail lights and windsheild wipers are out.

There are a couple of wiring diagram and manual available on the net. The relay you are talking about is the park lamp relay which supplies power to the tail lamps, license plate lights and both front and rear park lamps. If the park and plate lights are working the light switch, relay and supply power are good. You need to verify for a broken brown wire to the tail lamps (assuming the sockets, lamps and grounds on both tail lights are good) .If none of the lamps are working then the 15A fuse number 3, the light switch or the park lamp relay could be bad (note different contact in the main light switch work the other lights)

You can find a wiring diagram and component location at and

Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic

Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.

2000 Ford Ranger no 4wd lo

In order to get into 4 wheel drive low, make sure the shifter is in neutral before switching the dial to 4 wheel low. 4 wheel high and 2 wheel high can be switched into in park or in drive but 4 wheel low can only be obtained in neutral. If that does'nt work you may have an electrical or switch problem. Hope this helps. God bless!

Something killing new battery & alternator in 1987 Ford Ranger

Well , The vehicle could have several problems. The vehicle needs to be scanned for codes. The electrical system has an open circuit. The open circuit can be a window switch , door switch , head light switch , a radio amp. or relay. There are so many possibilities that a very experienced mechanic is going to have to trace the wiring harness and check for power and resistance . Hopefully a code can be pulled to lead him in the right directions.
You have to make sure all the tail light bulbs are correctly installed and all the fuse installed are the correct type. The vehicle could have an open in the ignition switch and staying on all the time even with the key out and the engine off. I hope this information helps but to be honest there is no easy fix to the electrical system in this situation.

Good Luck
