Default Won't turn over

My dad just purchased a 99 Ranger 3.0 Flexfuel Automatic, we drove it home over 2.5 hrs ran like a champ. Next day tried to start, wont turn over.

Checked connection at starter, battery is good. Can hear a clicking from a relay under the glovebox. Now, the thing that makes me worry is I got it to crank over and start 5 times in a row. Then I decided to move it, it then died as soon as it was moved out of park. Original no crank issues resumed. Grrr.

I been searching around for 2 days now and haven't found anything that sounds right. Does anyone have any ideas?

Pfft, nvm.
I guess I was wrong about this forum. So far this is my second post without a response since i have joined. Even though there has been several answers to others posted after mine in this same category. I was able to get immediate help over at "therangerstation.com" and was able to quickly resolve my problem.

cya.

I would look into the anti theft system. Is the light on or flashing? Have you cycled the door locks with the remote fob when it does it? Disconnect the battery to reset the computer. Check all fuses? Not too common problem is why lack of response. Good luck.
