    opinions on what ecu to run with 4.0

    My recommendation would be to use everything from the donor. By the way. The sensor on the exhaust is an oxygen sensor. Not an obd2 sensor. Obd1 and obd2 are types of onboard diagnostic communications with the ECU.

    Is your Ranger ever "done"? (Journey vs Destination)

    01 ranger showing ground in fuse panels

    Does it truly have continuity to ground? Or is it just not powered? There is a difference. Either way, if you are really looking at the constant feed, it should have battery voltage. If not, then yes there is a problem that must be found and corrected.

    Swapped Electric fan kit, wont turn off. Bad control module?

    ac fan-fuse 27 pass comp keeps burning out

    Do circuit breakers "Reset"

    Finish making all electrical connections, especially grounds before trying to troubleshoot electrical problems. yes, circuit breakers should reset. Some reset automatically when they cool. Some have a button for manual resetting. That is the purpose of circuit breakers instead if fuses.
