RE: 99 Ranger 3.0 Intermittent Starter Problem
Solo_one, good point always check and clean the battery cable with a no start problem, also check the ground cable at the end that goes to the engine and chassis.
If you don't hear a clicking sound you are not getting power to the starter solenoid. It could be the starter switch, but it can also be just an adjustment to it. Also if its an auto, it could be the nuetral safety switch or if standard the cluth safety switch. Find a wireing diagram and the wire at the solenoid and check for power with a test light then T/S to the switch. If you hear a click sound then its a bad starter solenoid or starter motor (maybe both). Good luck
