What year Ranger? I know that in '98 the wipers, dome light and speedometer are tied together in the GEM. I think it's (Generic Something Something) I can't remember the name. Again, on the '98 there are two grounds for it I am told. One just to the left of the radiator and one on the left fender about half way back to the firewall. Yours might be similar. That stuff on mine will not work with out the engine running and that seems to be the general opinion of what it might be.
