Ranger will not start once it gets below a certen temperture. Once the outside temp gets above 40 it starts right up.

Take your battery in to be tested, Have them test your battery's CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) Battery cells usually get fried from the heat during the summer months. If the battery tests good. Think about replacing your starter, it's possible that the starter is "gummed" up. With colder temperatures the "Gum" becomes denser not allowing the auger in the start to spin with ease.
