This answer was rated:

i have a 2001 ranger it want start. i found that the fuse #24 15 amp did not have power to it. pulled fuse panel out to see why other fuses had power and this fuse did not, it was fed with a seperate wire for power. checked starter relay had power on arm only. jumped across to n.o. contact and starter turned over. where does starter fuse get power from. does neutral sw. supply grd to stater relay. if so where is neutral start switch and where does relay get power to close start relay.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Fuse 24 powers the white/pink wire. That changes to a pink wire and goes into the transmission range sensor on the drivers side of the transmission. If in park or neutral, power goes out of the TR sensor on the tan/red wire to pin 85 coil side of the starter relay. Fuse 24 is powered from the ignition swich red/light blue wire with the key held in the start position.
