IGNITION SWITCH

Ford Ranger

1998 Ford Ranger 154,000miles, stick shift and 2 wheel drive. I have been having problems with what I think is the ignition switch. This morning I went to start the truck, put the key in and nothing happened. No sound of any sort, usually I hear the annoying noice that informs me I have my door open, but nothing happened when I turned the key. The vehicle didn't start, I took the key out went inside to make a phone call came back 5 to 10 minutes later, put the key in and everything worked fine. This happened about 2 or 3 times more today. I start up my truck at least 30 times a day due to fact that I use it for my job. It's a guessing game, I don't know when it's going to be a problem.

Thanks,
Maggie

Check for loose connections or corrosion on the battery.
