Ford Ranger 1988 ignition

Asked by 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?

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.


Park neutral safety switch can be at fault as well
