1996 Ford Ranger Starting Issue
Hi, I have a 1996 Ford Truck Ranger automatic 2WD 4.0L EFI 6cyl. In the morning I can start up without issue. I run around town a bit, shut down the engine, come back, attempt to start the truck and nothing. There is no "resistance" when turning the key. What I have to do out of desperation is to to take the shift bar and lift it up and move the shift indicator arrow well left of the "P" symbol. I then apply gas and the truck starts. I just replaced the battery and the issue is still occurring. I am sure tomorrow morning I will be able to start the truck without issue. Why would sitting overnight make things ok in the morning with regard to starting? What is going on? Thanks!
