Your Ranger has two possible starter set ups. One has the starter solenoid directly mounted to the starter. The other is a remotely mounted solenoid on the right inner fender well. If your Ranger has the second set up, try replacing that solenoid. Other possibilities can be a bad ignition or neutral safety switch. If the solenoid does not solve your problem, you may want to have a local expert from YourMechanic diagnose the starting system to help resolve this issue.
