99 Ford ranger won't start

Asked by May 30, 2017 at 12:00 AM about the 1999 Ford Ranger XL Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bought new battery, checked the starter, the solenoid is mounted to the starter.  They work fine.  Truck will
start when hooked up to booster with cranking assist. Will not start with jumper cables.  Napa tested the
battery and it's perfectly fine.  Checked YouTube it said disconnect power cable to battery and hook up text
light from positive on battery to positive cable. Light came on meaning I have a short somewhere. Pulled the
fuses it the ignition switch and starter relay fuse.  When I disconnect the ignition switch light stays on.  When
you try to start you can hear starter relay engaging.  Need some tips.
