I have a 91 Ford Ranger Truck. Yesterday I went out to start it and it wouldn't start. Nothing. Did not turn over, no sound at all. Dead. I assumed the battery was dead but it tested fine and all the lights worked fine. I don't know much about engines. Any ideas what could cause this? I purchased the truck a few months ago and when I started it for the first time the previous owner informed me that in order for the truck to start you must have the clutch pushed in. I am now wondering if that might be my problem. Maybe whatever you are pressing when you push the clutch down has broken. Sound feasible? If so what am I looking for and where would it be. I don't notice anything around the clutch pedal but really don't know what I am looking for. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
