  • Came home today turned off the engine and my back lights will not go off. I then took the ground off the battery and then put it back on and still the lights went back on. Does anyone know what the problem could be. Could it be a relay switch. Any ideas?
  • and i thought i was doing good to get 20mpg out of my 2000 3.0 ranger ;)
  • you could try checking the stop switch. it should bee on the brake pedal under the dash. it may be stuck in the in position. if it is, you might try spraying some w-d 40 on it and see if it will loosen up.
  • I've been having problums with the way my 1999 Ford Ranger shifts its a 3 liter 4x4 with a 5 speed (automatic) trans. I took it in yesterday and had it scanned for codes and it came up with seven different ones. What i want to know is if anyone knows if an EGR valve can not only cause poor engine performance but issues with the tranny as well,Since everything is all computerized? I also pulled a code (PO732 gear 2 incorrect ratio)and (P1756 shift Solenoid)does anyone know where the shift solenoid is located on this vehicle...The scan was done at a tech prep class by a teach who didn't know much about tannys so he couldn't tell me where to start
  • HELLO THERE IM HOPEING YOU GOT THIS PROBLUM FIXED ON YOUR RANGER BECAUSE i NEED A LITTLE HELP. CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE PROBLUM WAS AND HOW THEY FIXED IT AND HOW MUCH DID IT COST IV GOT THE SAME TRUBLE WITH MY TRUCK AND ITS DRIVEING ME CRAZY THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

    If you mean your brake lights, then the problem is the switch on the brake pedal. It is about $8 an parts stores. If you do it yourself, note how the clip and nylon washers come out of the old one, and put the new one on the same way.

    I replaced this 3 times across 6 years on my 94 Ranger.

    If you mean your backup lights, I'm not sure where the switch for this is at. I think it might be on the transmission itself.
  • well good news (i guess...lol) its only about a $100.00 fix after being on the phone for hours yesterday i found out it is in fact the Shift Solenoid and it is 68.00 but it can only be purchased through a Ford Dealership. The solenoid is in trans pan so the fluid and screen might as well be replaced at the same time so i figure about 100.00 if you do it yourself...if you take it to someone it may cost alot more...and as far as my gear two with the incorrect ratio...well i was told my tires are to big...there only 2 sizes bigger than stock and they are throwing the computer off...hope this helps you...One Question..Does your OD (over drive) light blink on and off sometimes when it shifts funny??

    Horn does not work on a 94 Ranger. Where is the horn and fuse? Cannot afford to take to a mechanic to get it to fixed. Cannot find the horn. It is like invisible. I know it has to be there somewhere. Thanks everyone. :blush:

    Well, I owned a 94 Ranger for 7 years and never needed to look at or for the horn.

    My best guess - somewhere on the right side, in front of the right wheel well. Probably have to get to it from the bottom.
  • I have tried bleeding the hyd. clutch syst. for about 6 hours and it still won't pump up enough to put it in gear when it is running. It is a 95 ranger, 2 wd., 5 spd. I hope you can give me some advice.

    No, tried that and it is not there. Thanks for responding. ;)
  • 1990 4 cyl. 2.2 engine The blower motor only works on high speed. I changed the switch and it still does the same thing.

    need to know where the module is on a 94 ranger 3.0
  • bolivarbolivar Posts: 2,316
    The blower motor is actually a 1 speed motor. Most cars get lower speeds through a 'resistor pack'. The high speed is a direct connection,not going thru the resistor pack.

    The resistor pack is burned up. That's why the high speed still works, it bypasses the pack.

    The pack is usually near the blower motor under the hood, on right side. Has several wires going into it.

    Only thing I know about is the ignition pack that all the spark plug wires come out of.
  • Can anyone help me I have a 1992 ford ranger and im having trouble finding a in dash cd player and im wondering if anyone could tell me where to turn to to find a cd player that fits into the dash, not having to do any modifications to the cd player or dash in order for it to fit.
    Any replies on this would really help and also it has to be cheap for i dont want to spend a fortune on a cd player.

    THANKS ALOT,

    Have you tried Crutchfield? They sell numerous head units and almost always GIVE you the dash kit to make it fit.
  • Try the u joint, front half shaft or the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front wheels.
