    • Same thing happened to me there is a chip In the key that has to go into the computer to send a new code I hope this helped a little bit I had this happen a year ago so I don’t fully remember

  • So I’m doing work on 2003 and have a bunch of wires under the dashboard that pulled out and I noticed that they are pulled out of the back side of the fuse panel on the driver side and I have no idea where they’re supposed to go I don’t know if somebody had a picture of the back side of the fuse panel so I can see what color coordination the wires are or if there was a schematic somewhere that I can get to show me which wires go to which fuse

  • Thanks I finally fixed my problem..I found your easy to read diagrams and the fuse location with what it controls was very helpful. the color was helpful too..

  • i have a 2003 ford raneger 2.3L got a/c working. auxilary fan working .lost powder to horn and remote door locks and inside door locks can’t find fuses and or relays for either or do they work together.owners mamual wire diagrams that i have checked haven’t helped.It was working before i had to get in to a/c ,fan and drl [190K miles maybe more than i can handle.Not counting eng. :{

  • Good day. I need any help. I have a 02 2.2L ford range xl with a 5 speed manual transmission that won’t crank. I changed the following parts. battery, starter. plugs and wires. alternator. ignition coil. clutch pedal neutral switch. the battery cables are good, but still won’t crank. l tried to reset the antitheft system but still wont crank. what can l try. please help. thanks James

  • I noticed that for the Relay Box the Diagram has K336-Window safety relay and under the Functions you have K366-Window relay. I’m confused. Plus under Functions you have couple words misspelled K2-Flasher realy and K115-Battary relay. Just giving ya a heads up.

  • I have a 2000 Ford Ranger-4W wheel drive. The emergency brake light does not show on the dashboard when the brake is engaged (pushed down). The switch is getting power, but there is no light on the instrument panel. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions that you all can provide
