  1. Ignition cluster F***

    I'm wondering if someone can point me in the right direction... excluding the mental health clinic, this is only an automotive issue. I'll deal with the voices later, for now I'm dealing with TFI nightmares, duraspark dreams and the reality of neither. I have a 1985 ranger with the 2.8 that I...
  2. 97 Ranger Lost Keys

    Howdy! I am looking at an 97 Ranger, 4 cylinder, Manual to buy but the previous owner lost the keys. What options do I have to get new keys for it? Locksmith said he could make a new key from the door and that possibly would work for the ignition as well, but wants to charge $375. Owner wants...
  3. Bad spark

    Hi, I’ve got a 1988 Ford bronco ii. It’s running like sh*t. I’m not sure exactly where I’m at with it. As in I’m not sure if any of the new parts I’ve put in are marking the problem worse, or if the bad part is getting worse over time. The spark from the coil to the distributor seems ok. The...

  6. Freshly bought 88

    I just bought an 88 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Automatic (2.9) When I bought it on Wednesday it ran really well. I decided I was still going to change the oil, transmission fluid, filters, and ignition coil. (They replaced everything else.. wires, distributor, plugs) but left the old coil. I did all...
  7. 4.0 v6 Simple Starter Wiring Going Insane

    Hey fellow rangers, through a slew of craziness after my starter motor died some 6 weeks ago, I've somehow found myself in a extremely newbie mechanic situation. There is only one line ran from my fender mount relay down to my starter solenoid, which is attatched to my starter motor. One wire...

  9. Computer replacement does NOT convince truck to start

    Hello! More turnover drama with my 2004 3.0L v6. I changed the computer (NC exchange gave 2 keys) because its 158k and because that vehicle/lock light was flashing for months. After the replacement, engine will still silently not turn over but will shut down the heater if the heater is on. The...
  10. 1984 Ranger 2.2 ignition problems

    Good morning, I have an 84 Ranger 2.2 that was having ignition switch issues, so I swapped the ignition switch and the cylinder end broke off in the ignition column.

  11. 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...

  14. Rear Antilock light on, no tailights or turn signals.

    I have an 89 Bronco II. When I turn it over, the rear antilock light stays dimly lit (Like it's only part way engaged) There's nothing wrong with my brakes, and I used to be able to flick the ignition again really quickly and it would go out. Now it takes a couple minutes to get it off, if it...

    Starting Issues after 4.0 Swap!

    I posted a while ago about issues I was having with my '88 Ranger, in which the previous owner swapped a 4.0 from a 92' Explorer into. Apparently all the issues stemmed from him using the original 2.9 harness for the computer and some of the sensors, and splicing everything into the 4.0. I don't...

    I was driving my truck with the windows down. I parked and cut the engine. I realized I hadn't rolled my windows up. I got to turn on my accessories, to roll the windows up. Nothing happens. I go to start the truck and the ignition lock is totally slack. There is no resistance. I turned the key...
