My 1998 Ford Ranger Extend Stepside 4X4 4.0L won't start!
My Ranger clicks when the key is turned! The cab lights & windows work but
nothing else happens!
Can you Help me?
Check battery voltage, should be 12.4vdc, minimum. If battery is good and still won't turn over, check all battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If all cables are ok, check for voltage at the starter solenoid small terminal. If voltage is present and still no crank, replace starter
Sounds like a weak battery. You probably need a new one. Have it tested.
We replaced the battery cables & the battery is charged.
Then proceed to next step, check voltage signal at the starter solenoid. Be careful do not assume battery is good just because you changed it, check for proper voltage. 90% of the time the problem is the battery, dirty, corroded or loose battery cables
Have the starter checked,
Try turning the engine over by hand or with a breaker bar on crank, should turn over make sure engine not locked up, then proceed to check solenoid and starter
