Default Just bought a used Ranger

I've had my Ranger now for 27 days. Previous owner put new ball joints and shocks on right before I bought it. I put new tires all around last week. Soon as I put the new tires on, I got an opportunity to find the inertia fuel reset switch. Wouldn't start Saturday morning. But I figured out what to do by checking out the owner's manual (good thing he gave it to me). Happened again this morning. I went to a dealer today and got a new switch. Hope this solves the problem. Any input would be appreciated.

Did you do the spray in bedliner yourself? Friends tell me I should do that due to a little rust in the bed. Another friend told me to use the stuff you roll on - that it would last longer.

The dealer did it on my truck. I don't think the roll on stuff will last longer. But it will be cheaper I'm sure.

Welcome to FRF! And the switch should work fine, also for bedliners, Mikes94Turbo has roll in/spray in that seems to work for him, I still have the plastic POS in mine but I also have a canopy so I'm not to worried about it, I have Line X in my GMC and its some of the toughest crap I have ever seen! It's been cut, set on fire, had I don't know how many engines, trannies, rearends and other crap dragged across it with only minor scratches in it, its 5 years old and still cleans up well. It was spendy but in my opinion worth it, I had roll in in my Blazer, that I stripped, but I never really beat on it. Just my 2 cents.

thank you everyone... I put the new switch in (pretty easy) and it's doing ok so far.... seems the previous owner had also changed the switch because it also had a red top over the button..... perhaps this is typical of this truck..... will do an autopsy on the old one.... just for curiosity sake....
