Default Re: New Battery, New Starter but still won't crank 2001 2.3l

Easy trick is to just yank out the relay and jump it with a 9v battery and make sure that she goes open/close/open.

if you have power to the starter, check for power at the start signal on the starter. if theres voltage, your starter should be working, and your engine might be seized. if not, then you can try jumping it and seeing if it kicks over.

At the starter:
- Big terminal with the big red wire should have 12v at all times
- Little wire should have 12v when the key is turned to start
- Other big termal should have 12v when the key is turned to start
- You should also hear the big ass relay on the starter motor click when the key is turned to start.

The latter three you can't test without a second person to turn the key to start while you're under the truck with the meter. Gear shift in neutral, parking brake set, all four wheels chocked.

If all that works, then you done got yourself a problem. Either the new starter is bad, or motor is siezed.

are you using programmed PATS keys?? or just regular cut keys.... what lights do you see come on or flash when u turn the key? if its a stick have you checked the clutch safety switch...? many years back I had a 94 ranger that would not crank, nothing..... my ******* back thennnn i was younger and dumb tooo i took it to a shop and i got charger 80 buks for some dome guy to connect a buttt connector to a broken wire by clutch... well 2 yeas later same thing happened... that one butt connector came apart.... I soldered, heat shrink tubed it and zip tiedd it. I personally don't like butt connectors.... oh well...

----------

also how about the fuel pump safety reset switch....

None of that would have anything to do with this. The engine isn't cranking at all. The PATS system and the inertial fuel shutoff do not prevent it from turning over or inhibit the starter.

I agree about the fuel safety reset switch,, but if using a non PATS key on MY 2010 IT WILL NOT EVEN CRANK. i DONT KNOW ABOUT OLDER RANGERS, BUT MY 2010 WILL NOT CRANK IF A KEY IS NOT PROGRAMMED. HE ALSO NEEDS TO CHECK CLUTCH SAFETY SWITCH.
