    Weird voltages read from ignition switch

    Hi all, I'm working on an engine swap in my 1990 B2. I just replaced the main power relay with an aftermarket one (cut off the old one and spliced in the new one). However, when I turn the key to "run" the relay closes its contacts as it should, but when I set the key to "off" and take out the...
  2. Bad Spark

    I have a 1987 Bronco II. I am not a mechanic. I replaced the TFI Module. I Screwed something up. I was getting some slight hesitation when I pressed the gas, the idle was a little rough, and a little rough on start up and going from drive to park. I figured the ignition system. I checked the...

    Starter Troubles.

    Hello all, I used to frequent these types of forums all the time... I should more. To get to the point, I'm at my whit's end. I am having troubles diagnosing a problem with my starter. I have recently replaced the ignition switch and steering column wiring. But that is unrelated to the problem...

    90' Bronco ii losing power/bad mpg

    My Bii was running great up until about a month ago when I got a code 41 CEL. That code has since gone away after a good ol italian tune up and has not returned in the past 3 weeks. However, I now notice that when I hit the gas after being stopped it feels incredibly weak even if i floor it. If...

    2.3L ('83-'97) Engine issues

    So I just thought of this. Would having swapped engines out of a 93 ranger into a 92 ranger require me to use the computer in the 93 as well?
  6. 1989 XLT SuperCab 2.9L V6 manual not starting.

    I'll list, in order, the symptoms I noticed, and the steps I've taken thus far in attempting to fix the problem. Attempted to start my truck in the morning. I turn the key and I get nothing, not a sound. The starter does not try to roll over or anything. I check the radio and it works for now...

    Anti-theft no PATS starting issue.

    Okay I know this has been asked a ton. But I can’t get clarification for my own problem with my ranger. Its a 97 XLT super cab. 4.0 with a manual and 4x4. the other day I tilted my steering wheel up after shutting off truck. And the ‘alarm’ system went off and since then won’t reset. I don’t...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...

    After replacing the harmonic balancer due to rough idle and noise coming from it and replacing the crankshaft sensor at the same time being that I was down there anyway My truck started throwing a combination of codes, —— PO300, 301 and 305 which is a general random misfire and misfire on...
  12. 3.0 distributor to coil pack need help

    I have a 1995 4x4 ranger that has cracked heads or block. I found a good 3.0 out of a 1995 Areostar that i can buy cheap but it has a distributor and my truck has coil pack ignition. My question is will the Aerostar motor work and if so what i have to do to swap it to coil pack ignition?. Im...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 1986 Ranger 2.3 wont start.

    86 2.3l will crank but not fire. I bought this truck from a guy that states "the fuel pump relay went out" replaced the relay and it still wont fire. I have jumped the inertia switch for GP. Here is my current status: Ignition on: no fuel pump prime. however, 12v power applied directly to the...
  16. 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...
  17. 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. After getting a new lock cylinder and discovering the problem, I decided to go with a push to start system instead of pulling the...
  18. 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...
