  5. Have to reset power to get things to work. 1996 Ranger.

    So I have a truck that sometimes the wipers won't work and neither will the dome light or bed lights unless I pull the battery cable and put it back on.

  9. 2002 4.0L starting problem

    I have a 2002 4.0 4x4XLT with 350,000 kms on the engine. The truck runs well but sometimes (maybe 1 in 20) it's hard to start. It turns over slowly and sounds like the battery is nearly dead. It has always started but I'm afraid it's going to leave me stranded some day. A few months ago, I had...
