My first ranger!

Hey guys, heres my first new to me ranger!

Also have my first issue with it, for some reason, my wipers just stopped working, along with the spray. and theres no power going to the dome light for some odd reason.. i really need my wipers, i live on the wet coast, (west) The spedo isnt working either suddenly, and the airbag light on the cluster is flashing at me.. I installed a expo dome light last night and it just stopped working, it must be the reason.

i checked the fuses and there all good, disconnected the battery, let it sit for a bit then hooked it back up, still nothings working. I have no idea what it is, anyway onto a picture of the truck, its a 2002, 2wd auto, 170k, picked er up for 3grand.



Also, im going to take out the grill and re-paint it black, but i cant quite get the little clips holding the lower portion of the grill and front clip. Is there some kinda trick to them i should know? havent tried to hard, i gotta get off to work!

For the grille a little wd40 on the clips to free the gunk up. Then just pull hard

Sounds like your GEM isn't working or isn't powering on. It controls the dome light, wipers, and speedometer output.
Recheck all your fuses especially the ones in your dash corresponding to GEM or CTM.
