1997 3.0L Ranger electrical problem
Hello, I am hoping that someone may have some suggestions for a problem that I am having. Sometimes I am having a problem with my Ranger stalling. It happens mostly when the weather is cold and rainy. The truck will start fine, but when there is an electrical load such as lights, AC, or brakes the truck will stall. I replaced the TPS sensor and cleaned the IAC valve hoping this would do it, but the problem presists. I took my truck to the dealer and they could not find a problem. A friend said he had similiar problems with his Ranger and it was one of the fuses in his power distribution box. I checked these fuses and they all appear fine. I will replace the 50A ignition fuse hoping that it may be a cracked fused that I cannot detect. After driving for about 20 minutes the problem presists until I turn all power off and start it up again. Symtoms that I will be having problems is that the turn signals will flash slower at idle and will increase with idle. Also the hazard lightswill iluminate faintly with or without the head lights being on. Like I said before it happens infrequently, about once every month. Beening that I live in San Diego where it's warm most of the time I believe this is why it happens so unfrequently. But winters coming and I have a feeling this may happen more often. Thanks for any input.
