yesterday i inserted the key and turned it as normal. nothing happened it didnt even crank. i decided to give it a second before trying again. by the time i got my seatbelt on it started on its own.

at least 5-10 seconds after i turned they key passed before it decided to just start. i turned it back off to see it it would do that again but it didnt. starts on time twice yesterday and it started fine this morning. have any of you experienced something like that before? this is a first for me. my 21 ranger is possessed.

If you have a warranty just take it to the dealer. If not have your battery tested at the auto parts store.

had the same thing happen to my 2022 ranger. it would start about 5 seconds after turning the key. it was completely random. dealership said they replaced a computer module. i hope this truck dont become problematic. it took a while to get it in for servicing. my local dealer says warranty repair work appointments are backed out 2 months now. not good at all.
