Re: 1999 Ranger - Won't Start, tried everything

Put a test light on fuse 24 under the hood (7.5 AMPS) when turning the key to start. Test light should light up, this will at least confirm the ignition switch is working.

Re: heater hose/water pump questions

I had the same ďninja throwing starĒ corroded water pump on my 2000 2.5L. Battled no heat for a whole winter season.

Re: Is a new Ford GEM module pre-programmed?

Technically you donít have a GEM, you have a CTM (central timer module).

Re: Is a new Ford GEM module pre-programmed?

The main thing for a 2wd that requires programming is the tire size.

The programming function of forscan is only on the PC version.

Re: 99 ranger 2wd front suspension

Itís not a damn Mazda design. People need to stop spreading that shit. Itís essentially the same engine in the 1970s Pintos.
