    Would you by any chance have a wiring diagram for the factory stereo in a 2003 sport trac?

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    I think I made it worse... Took the brakes apart and cleaned everything with brake cleaner, reassembled and now that wheel is TOTALLY locked up. I've read that the flex line can cause pressure to be held if it fails, so I checked it by opening the bleeder to see if the pressure was released...

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    Well I ended up grabbing a junk yard caliper that was in good shape and using that. Installed a new bleeder on both front calipers, cleaned up the new caliper, made sure the pistons would compress, bolted it on, connected everything, bled all the lines... annnnd now the other front caliper...

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    That would be ideal, but I'm flat broke and the truck is my only way to get to work. I have to make do with what I have on hand, which is a bunch of tools and a few spare bleeder screw replacements. I'm going to try using a stripped bolt remover socket if I can find the darn thing.

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    Yeah that's what I did, sprayed it with PB blaster every 15 minutes or so for an hour and the thing is still solid.

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    Well vice grips didn't work at all, just chewed it up more and hurt my wrist. 11mm? Argh my ranger is such a frankenstein... I'm about ready to push the ranger off a cliff :roll: and take the '79 bronco off tool shed duty to use as my daily

    My Ranger Hates Me, what size are the front bleeders?

    So I blew a front brake line recently and after changing the busted steel line I go to bleed the brakes. I loosen up the bleeders on the rear drums in preparation, 7mm bleeders, interesting. Move on the front bleeders and I cannot find the right size for these friggin things. 9mm is too...

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Yeah all we can do is hope. Update: I just went outside to move it and found my brakes are now gone and there's brake fluid all over the engine compartment. Wonderful.

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Alright so here's the situation. The problem seems to have fixed itself. I got under the truck, turned the front driveshaft by hand, ok, not locked into 4x4, turned both front axle shafts on the TTB, those are free too, but the light was still on. One day later the light went off and...

    Thanks, I'll go do some of those tests tomorrow when it's light out.

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Thanks for the help, I haven't been able to find anyone with a similar problem in all my searching, I don't understand it either. Yes I have manual hubs and I've turned them both to "free" but I can hear and feel that they're still locked in and my 4wd light won't turn off. Like I said, the...

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Argh, didn't work. I also tried driving in a straight line for a bit with the hubs locked and the T-case in 4h, then 4L for a few feet, and the the 4x4 still works and shifts between 2h, 4h, N and 4L fine but that indicator refuses to go off and my hubs won't unlock. I can hear that the hubs...

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Alright I'll try that. Edit: I see we have the same truck :P

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    Yeah sorry I couldn't delete it. I'm not sure, I can tell it's not in 4wd anymore, one thing I noticed is that I never felt the hubs break loose like they usually do when I unlock them, not sure if that's the problem or if I'm just loosing my mind.

    '96 Ranger 4wd Indicator Won't Turn Off

    The "4wd" indicator on my dash refuses to shut off even though my truck's 4x4 is not engaged. Can't find anything about this problem, I had to shift my ranger into 4-low to get up a steep muddy hill today and the 4wd indicator came on however the low range light did not, though it still worked...

    Push Bar for Fog Lights

    Hi I'm new to the forums, I have a push bar off a 2004 ranger that I want to use to mount fog lights on my 1996 ranger, is there any way to make that push bar fit?
