FORD RANGER STARTER PROBLEM

1994 Ford Ranger • 18,000 miles

Ranger will not start - battery has power (lights work and clock has correct time), no clicking sound when key engaged. Could this be a relay problem? Car was operating in daylight for approx 2 hrs before engine shut down. Would not restart.

If the starter won't crank? Check the starter circuits. Any testing at the starter, make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Could be issue with neutral switch or clutch switch. You could try a jumper wire on the load side of starter relay, to see if starter will crank. In the diagram, the load side of relay is the line with the arrowhead on it, When the relay is energized that arrowhead moves to the other terminal. Like I said, make sure the tranny is out of gear.
