Default 2000 Ranger XLT 2.5L 5 speed Manual Transmission will not crank.

I’ve replaced the “clutch pedal position switch” or I call it the “neutral safety switch” motor still would not crank. Then I replaced the starter and solenoid that didn’t work.. only crickets chirping when the key is turned not even clicking.. Btw, battery is fully charged and terminals are clean... someone please help!!!!

I would suggest checking to see if you have power at the starter when the key is turned to the Start position.

Could be as simple as a bad ignition switch. Fuses all check out OK, including the ones under the hood? I've seen cases where the ignition power fuse gets slightly corroded and causes a no crank situation.

I found the problem with my truck.. after replacing the starter and solenoid along with the new clutch safety switch.. I determined that the issue is between the ignition and the starter and knowing there is only one device between the two it must be an issue with the clutch and switch.. after further inspection I noticed the pedal had a lotta play to much in fact that the switch was being pushed beyond where it needs to be to allow the starter to engage.. So after some crafty wiring I'm able to with a flip of a switch start the truck without engaging the clutch and to allow my cruise to still function I flip the switch back and the computer sees the safety switch is in place and will engage the cruise function.... yasaaaay for me!!! Lol

The wires needed to bypass are pink/white and Pink or the two closest to the fire wall when the plug is on the safety switch...
