I have a 2005 Ranger Edge. I had the same problem. I did two things. First I replaced the fuel pump and it worked again for about 2 months. Then it stopped working again so I replaced the inertia switch with a new one from the Ford Dealership. It worked again for about a month. Than it stopped again, so I replaced the wiring that goes from the inertia switch to the main box on the bottom right passenger side. I also put the inertia switch inside the casing on the lower right so it couldn't be kicked. It has been working for 2 weeks now. I hope nothing else happens.

On another note, I had another electrical problem. My speedometer cluster stopped working and my mechanic found loose wires rubbing against metal on the inside. I think the electrical components on these Ford Rangers are just cheaply made. That is the only thing to check for you now. If it isn't the fuel pump or the inertia switch, just check all the wiring from fuel pump to inertia switch to make sure it is all done correctly. Also check all fuses for fuel pump/inertia switches.

Sometimes I say I and mean a mechanic, I am not a car expert, but would like to be.

I had this same issue. There is an inertia switch located below glove box. Mine went bad. Here is what I wrote to another person with the similar problem:

fuel starvation from somewhere? filters,, sometimes two filters one by the tank and another under bonnet, dont think its plugs, but you can remove and use small wire brush to clean them. check the plug electrode colour to see fuel burn pattern on cylinders, should be lite brown deposits on electrodes, white electrodes = overheating and black sooty electrodes = to rich fuel mixture.

Like Laurie Mack said. It is the inertia switch below the glove box. Here is some funny information. DON'T change the fuel pump first. Interesting fact: I bought the new inertia switch from Ford and the install instructions that came with it said to install the switch in the protected area to the right where the fuses are. It is like Ford knows it was a dumb place to put the inertia switch, but they won't let you know until after you buy a new one. I have read at least 20 other people on here that had the same problem I just had.

release gas cap if sucks air it could be vapor locking if starts after replace cap

You should remove the excess immediately. This can be done in two ways 1. Remove the drain plug on the pan under the motor. If you do not want to drain all of the oil, attach a vacuum hose from a vacuum cleaner at the oil fill on the valve cover. This creates a vacuum on th engine and prevents all the oil from draining at once. Otherwise 2. Drain all the oil and the refill to recommended level. Over fill of the oil creates air bubbles that prevent proper lubrication of the engine.

You never say make, model or year or engine type of this vehicle, but I can say that fuel pump voltage is module controlled on newer vehicles to save energy and make them quite, so it is entirely possible that is the correct voltage in a static test.

The replacement kits (includes Conversion Kit. Includes Switch And Bracket, Cowl Trim Door, Instruction Sheet) are the same for 2004 & 2005 models. Since it includes the trim, the kits are sold by the interior color. Ford discontinued just the switch (made a change) some time back. Ford OEM auto parts Motorcraft filters license plates

That could be caused by any number of thing's . Cam , crank sensors Etc.. Your best bet is to have it diagnosed by a qualified repair shop .

Hi Allison:
If the work was done in a shop I would bring it back and review the problems with the service manager. Usually they are really good about getting it done right, without additional cost.
If this was a "home" job, there could be several different problems.
I'd be jacking it up and checking that there is no slack in the bearing installation. I'd also be looking for any reason that one brake would drag or slide. To exaggerate, if one rotor is greasy, and another one scored, braking will be different and the wheel will jerk.
Here's a fun way to check.
Find a large vacant space like an empty parking lot.
At about 10 kmp, very lightly hold the steering wheel, and sharply hit the brakes. Depending on how much fun you are having you can try it a bit faster. The steering wheel will sharply turn to the side that is getting the most braking force.
It won't take long to track down the problem.
Hope this helps.
Be safe.
Fix them ......... soon.

white can be water in the combustion process or faulty injectors
have a compression test done and have the injectors serviced by an accredited diesel service shop

Cold air like, really cold or just cool. Sounds like your hot/cold blend door motor has perhaps failed with the blend door in the semi hot position. Blend door motor failure is very common on the Ford truck HVAC systems. Is is located behind the glovebox on top of the HVAC housing assembly.
