The 2003 Ford Ranger came with a variety of engine configurations and trim levels, but all model variations of that year’s Ranger have a fuel pump safety switch designed to shut off the fuel pump in the event of an accident.

If your vehicle’s fuel pump appears to be disabled after a hard jolt while driving, you may wish to check the pump switch to see if it is shut off. Checking the reset switch takes only a few seconds.

Step 1

Turn your vehicle off, place the vehicle in park and engage the parking brake to prevent the vehicle for moving while you work.
