      never knew there was a site just for ford rangers, this is cool. maybe you can help me, trying to locate the electronic transfer control module for the 4x4. it is not working, lights not coming on. fuses check out and i don't seem to be getting power to the transfer motor, rigged up test light because i was by myself. control module is not where haynes book says it is!! does anybody know where this thing is?? and how big is it. is it easy to check? again wiring diagram for this is hard to find.
      thanks and look forward to using this site more, now that i know it is here.

      The location varies by year. In 2006, it is in the dash center cavity. Remove the radio and radio bezel, it is the black box on the left side of the cavity.

      Yes. We have a couple of good threads on rebuilding transfer cases as well as a thread on repairing the shift motor. Take a look at the sticky threads on the top of the transmissions & transfer cases section.

      can you replace this through the radio hole without taking dash apart?
      i believe this is my issue, truck was sometimes going into 4 low when 4 high was selected, now it won't go into 4x4 at all and no light but has light when starting vehicle as other dash lights light, saw on youtube to unhook battery and reset module, this works but every time i go to use or need 4x4 i have to unhook battery first for 5 to 10 minutes.
