1992 Ford Ranger Electrical Problem
Hi, I was hoping someone on here might be able to give me some help or a at least a good starting place. I'm having an electrical problem with my 1992 Ford Ranger, 4cyl pick-up.
Let me first say that the Battery is fairly new and has been tested with no problems found. When I open the cab door the dome light comes on like normal. When I go to crank the engine the entire car's electrical system dies, including the dome light that was previously working. Now when I say go to crank, I mean simply turn the key from off to the on position, it doesn't rev the starter at all or make any sound other than the clicking from turning the key to on. It will do the same thing if I turn on the head lights when I get in the truck, it'll just die the same way.
Now after a few minutes or disconnecting the negative battery cable for a while the car I'm guessing resets itself and the dome light will come back on but if I go to crank or turn on lights it faults out again. I've checked the fuses, replacing the Ignition and head lights fuses. I've also checked with a voltmeter and am getting 12.4 volts on the battery.
I'm at a loss as to what the problem could be, if anyone can give me any advice on this issue I would greatly appreciate it.
