I bought a new 2007 Ford Ranger 2.3L five speed back in november of 06. It
recently has gotten hard to start whether the engine is cold or warm. when
it is hard to start, I usually have to reset the presets on my radio, which
is very annoying. and it sometimes tries to stall but doesn't when I have
to make a quick stop. Sometimes it will try to stall when braking for a
stop sign or a traffic signal. What could be causing this? Also what
causes the Air Bag light to come on? I was told by the dealer that a cell
phone will cause this. Is this true?

constantly. whether or not the cell phone is on. It started that after I
accidentally bumped my car with the truck. It wasn't even hard enough to
put a scratch on the bumper! this truck is a POS and is not even HALF the
truck my 1992 Ranger was.
P.S. I got a suvey about the truck in the mail today and I've had more
problems out of the truck than I have mentioned and Ford doesn't want to
do anything about it, so I put, I would NOT recmmend this truck to
Sounds to me like you should go to the dealer and have the codes read. If
there is a B1232 (if I remember right) that is a tattle tale crash detected
code. Have them pull the codes from the RCM and see what the codes are..
Get it fixed..
