Ford Ranger 1988 ignition

Asked by getpasteurized Jul 02, 2018 at 11:00 PM about the 1988 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One day my ranger ceased to start, i switched out the solenoid and the starter
relay. I am assuming the problem is my ignition switch?

1 Answer


Could be the ignition switch but be sure to check ignition and state fuses and relays first. The starter and solenoid are pretty easy to bench test with a 12V power supply (like a jump starter) if it can be easily removed too.
