Asked by Feb 11, 2016 at 08:00 PM about the 1993 Ford Ranger STX Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have no power at all until I jump the solonoid then I
have power and turn key and it just clicks I replaced the
ignition switch and solonoid still nothing I'm lost now and
can't figure it out batter has 12v then goes down to 11
when trying to crank checked the starter and the solonoid
on the starter is loose/broken will this cause the trick to
have no power?

Low battery? See if it starts when you jump it.

Battery has 12 volts even if it was low lights and radio should come on I turn the key and nothing unless I put a screwdriver across the starter solonoid then the lights come on but still no start as soon as I take the screwdriver off no power at all

This sounds like the battery connections need to be cleaned, and the battery should read 12.5 to 12.7 DCV....12 volts is getting low.

12.4 is the battery what I don't understand is why I have to jump the solonoid to get power to the truck the key doesent do anything no light no radio until I jump the solonoid
