Really Weird Electrical Problem
Here is the culprit: 2000 Ranger XLT 4dr, 4x2, 3.0, Auto, 132k.
Here is the problem: Oil Pressure gage fluctuates, Over Drive light comes on at will, ABS light comes on at will, and Speedometer fluctuates. When the brakes are applies, there is a clicking from the relay under the hood and the brake pedal pulses with each click. When the right turn signal is applied, the speedometer drops to 0 with each blink. When the Cruise Control is on, if the right turn signal is used the Cruise Control is shut off.
These problems all started happening at the same time two days ago. I have not wired or modified anything in the truck in months. The only modifications are power leather buckets from a Mountaineer wired in junction with the cigarette lighter and an Infinity Basslink. I am sure that I have a relay problem or a short somewhere.
Ideas are welcome.
