  1. On a 120 mile round trip my 2001 3.0 4x4 started overcharging during first 60 miles then got worse on return and then died!

    On a 120 mile round trip my 2001 3.0 4x4 started overcharging during the first 60 miles and then after sitting for an hour or so while at a VA medical appointment and en-route home, it got worse and ended up pegging (maxed out) the charging gauge about 40 or so miles into my return trip from the...

    Update on my 2000 4.0 C4 swap to my 94 Ranger

    Here’s the engine and trans along with everything else that came with. I’m looking into a wiring harness but I’m having issues finding one, if anyone has access to one please let me know. Also dash and gauge cluster any recommendations on where I can get those?

    BII/2nd Gen Ranger T-Case Question

    Is it normal to have the e-selector button tray on the dash in tandem with a manual transfer case lever? The buttons are blank, no 4x4/Low written on them, but there's have a noticeable click when I press them. From what I've seen on junkyard Rangers, there's usually a fake vent that goes...
  4. Melted O2 sensor connector

    2003 2WD 4.0L MFI SOHC 6cyl Ranger 122k on chassis 45k on engine Realized that my O2 sensor at S1B1 is out so I got the part at autozone and went to put it in only to find its connector in the engine compartment was melted and completely fused. Curious that a part like that would fail from...
  5. 4r44e Wiring Question

    TLDR: What does the 2 wire connector in the picture go to and how much will it suck to reconnect it?? I have a 150K+ miles 1996 Ford Ranger, Automatic and I've had issues with the transmission. I only paid $1000 for the whole truck so a rebuild kinda ruins my investment costs. I am trying to...

    Brighter bulbs on my 3.0

    Hello again, is it unwise to place brighter bulbs in my head lights? I purchased 2 sets of bulbs, one that’s 50% brighter and the other pair 150% brighter. If I put either in should I be changing some fuses to higher amp fuses? I’m really only familiar with putting some new speakers in...

  8. 1999 3.0 Misery

    Picked up 99 Ranger 3.0, reg cab, 4x4 automatic the other day. 90K miles and it looks pretty good. It ran rough, and the transmission shifted poorly, and there were no dash lights to the 4x4, and no transfer case response. I suspect the GEM is bad, as there are other electrical indicators...
  9. Overheating gas gauge circuit???

    Hi guys, I know it sounds strange but my gas gauge drops to empty after the engine gets up to op temperature. Happens faster on hot days, slower or not at all on cold days. Always works at startup and seems accurate. I'm pretty sure the tank isn't heating up so must be circuit in dash so...
  10. My truck won't start and it's making a clicking sound!

    After I got out of work this afternoon, I got in my truck and heard a rapid clicking noise coming from under the glovebox. I heard the clicking as soon as I got in the truck, before I put the key in. I tried to start her up and the engine would not start. We tried jumping her too and no luck...
  11. Ground in GEM Module??

    Hi Guys, new to the forum so I appreciate any help I can get. My battery would die if I didn't drive the truck for 4-5 days, so I decided to check to see if there was any current draw while the truck was not running. I found about 0.23 amps drawing all the time, so I started pulling fuses...
  12. 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. Also the door chime won't work but I feel like that is a blessing. Then they will work for the first couple of times the truck starts then will...
  13. Alarm lock unlock issues

    New member but omg can’t count the times I’ve read up on some of your ideas and used your knowledge for projects and ideas! So I’m no spring chicken when it comes to wiring but I’m at a complete loss trying to get the keyless entry working. I have set up the relays according to a 5 wire set up...
  14. 85 b2 no power

    Please someone help me with my electrical problem. The other day I was told about a 1985 Ford bronco 2 V6 5 speed 4x4 that is for sell. I went to look at it and put a battery in and broke a red fusible link off the starters solenoid. There wasn't enough wire left to work with so I cut off the...

    Fog lights come on after ignition turned off -- not kidding...

    But seriously folks... I noticed my fog lights were on after I got out of my truck. Headlights were not on, keys in pocket. Etc... I read up on how they work. I was able to get them to come on once when wiggling the switch with the ignition on and the lights off. They do come on when they are...

    Daily Down!

    I'm in a bad mood and need to rant right now. So, my daily driver, my 2008 Acura TL stopped cranking. I walked over to it mashing the unlock button like I tend to do, and got a bad feeling when the car didn't blink at me. all the lights are dim and only 4 diagnostic lights are coming on. And...
  17. Thinking about swap, have done some research, still have some questions...

    As the title states I have some questions about the 4.0 swap. I have a 1985 BII with a 2.8L carbed, w/ 5spd manual, that is terrible for where I want to take it (Sierra Nevadas). I can buy a donor Explorer that is 4WD with a 5spd transmission. Most of the threads I've read are about 2.9s to...
  18. Sat Now Won't Start!

    Hey guys, so I left town for a few weeks, truck was running great, and I came back and now it won't start! First thing I did when I got back was charge the battery and top off the oil the night before work, but in the morning it would crank but not start. Had power in the cab, starter was...

    Hello! I have a 99 Ranger with lighting problems in both taillight assemblies. This truck has three connectors in each taillight assembly: one for a single filament turn signal (two pins), one for a dual filament brake/park light (three pins), and one for a single filament backup light (two...
  20. Chopped 88 b2, make it legal in PA

    I'm going to get to the point and before anyone asks "why on earth..." I have included the reasons below. I want to put a non-Ranger truck cab on my B2 so I can seal the passenger compartment back up and pass an inspection (will be registering the vehicle off the cab's title so it's a truck...
