Having problems with your 2002 Ford Ranger Regular Cab ?

2002 Ford ranger starting

\015 My Ranger has been giving me trouble starting. For awhile it wasn't too bad but has gotten worse over the past couple of monthes. Used to only happen ever 2 weeks or so but now happens 4 or 5 times a week. When i try starting my truck it doesn't turn over or anything. If i give it a jump it seemed to start just fine up until recently jumping it doesn't do the trick. I noticed a couple times if it didn't start I would let it sit for an hour or so and jumped to start it and it fired right up. I tried a new battery but still have the same problem. I checked my charging system and the battery is getting the right charging voltage. Any idea?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

I had a similar problem with my old 1996 Mercury Sable. Turns out the problem was the Ignition switch was shot. Replaced it, problem solved.

That would be the next thing to check.

I have a 2002 ford ranger that got a lot of water in the gas. I have drained the tank and added heat as well as replaced the filter. When I try to start it the battery gauge goes down to 0 and all I hear is the starter clicking. I have checked the battery, starter, and the altinator and all are good. I have gotten it started a couple of times and it idols fine but if I drive it I only get about a mile before it dies and the battery will not turn over the starter. The volt gauge still goes down

I think your on the right path with your shorting thought. Is the distance you can travel always different or always the same? If it is always the same then it may not be a short or how long can it sit and idle when you get it running? ... Cars & Trucks

I have a 1999 Ford Ranger that I lost the key to. I had another 1999 ranger that runs great but has a bad frame. So I took the transceiver, ignition, and PCM out of the running ranger and put it in. The other ranger still won't start. When you turn the key to on, the theft light blinks really fast but still won't turn over. I ran a hotwire from solenoid to the battery and it won't start unless I spray ether into the airbox. Any suggestions please? Is there something else I need to change?

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger that has a battery drain. When the car sits overnight the next morning the battery if completely drained. I've done some research and found that it may be linked to the Security System (Ford's stock system with the chip in the key that corresponds to the ignition) in the truck, and if I disconnect the system, the car won't start, and to disconnect when I turn it off and reconnect when I go to start it is inconvenient. Any suggestions on how to fix it or how to find a

I have a motor home with a 2000 Ford V!0. It runs beautifully until about a week ago. Cruising down the highway at 60 MPH and the engine shuts down. I put the vehicle in neutral and the engine starts right up. Another 50 or so miles and dit does the sme thing. Yesterday I drove it to the Ford dealership, about 10 miles, and it did it 4 times. Ignition is still on becase all accessories are working. Fuel pump is working because it starts right up. Don Westerhoff [email protected]
