    I would like to know where to begin with diagnosing a friend’s 89 ford ranger
    I’ve already checked the inertial switch I found that it was unplugged with a jumper wire on it
    The TPS was changed out on the vehicle the owner said it started up it wouldn’t start before the swap out he mentioned that the person who worked on the vehicle unplugged the inertia switch and put a jumper to it no idea why but it started up they believed they fixed it so they put everything back together and when they went to start it up it would crank but would not start the gas pump starts when turn the key to on and theirs pressure when poking the gas pressure valve so with that said will you help by directing me to the appropriate diagnosing start? I will be appreciated and thankful Thank you

    You already have the most important tool of all – the internet, you can learn anything from Utube. It will take ingenuity and persistance and working out ways to get the answers to each problem in turn. Go on the net and go to Schrodingers Box and look up the videos that deal with your problem. Do the same thing with Scanner Danner. Buy the E book from Danner and you will find that it has links imbedded that will give you access to specific videos that will let you chase that item you will want to know about. So far you have have had to spend much money to get this point.
    If I was in your shoes I would pay the monthly subscription to both Schrodinger Box and Scanner Danner, remember and never forget – Knowledge is Power and Power is Control. Not having the specialist gear can be overcome by Knowledge. Best of luck, be stubborn and get the Knowledge and persist, you will win in the end.

    Greetings,
    I am sorry to hear you are having problems. When you connect your code reader and turn the key on, what codes do you get, if any?
