Major Starting problem !! Help !! AGAIn!!
Okay heres the facts. 1992 ranger xlt ext cab with the v6 4.0 5 spd manual.
Put a new starter on, new Solenoid. Still no power to the starter. 12v going to relay(solenoid) Battery reading slightly above 12.5v
When I attempt to start at ignition, the few idiot lights I have (full gauges) dim like they should. (As I said 12v going to solenoid)
Will Not jump start.
Do you think I got a bad starter ? Is there a fusable link somewhere in there. Maybe my battery cables ?
When I jumper from positive terminal of battery to solenoid it clicks but no starter action.
Should I check the voltage at the starter terminals to see if i'm getting anything to the starter ?
I lost my owners manual but I do have a Haynes.
Thanks, any help is Mucho Appreciated !!
Okay heres an update. Starter is now working. However whenever i connect my battery cables the truck starts even with the keys in my pocket. The only way to shut off the truck is to disconnect a battery cable. Of course that does not work if I've turned the ignition on. What do ya think and ignition switch problem ? IS the switch in the start position permanently ?
Thanks. Man I got to get this truck fixed I've really enjoyed it up to now.
