Hey,
Sounds like a broken wire/cable, or the gauge itself. It would probably b
easier to diagnose online if you had of told us which gauge it was because
it could b a sensor or such.

It sounds like he is talking about the amp, or charge, meter; doesn't it?

Subject: Re: FTE Small - 99 Range 5 spd AT

I have a 99 Ranger SC 4x4 with the Off-road package. It has the new 5 speed
automatic transmission. I have noticed that when I'm cruising in 5th gear
(OD)
and take my foot off the pedal, it appears to freewheel ( I think) but when I
press on the gas again it ALWAYS drops down to 4th and THEN shifts back to
5th. In my mind, this would cause an excessive amount of wear on it I don't
remember any passenger cars that I have driven with 4 spd. ATs doing this. Is
this typical of this transmission ? ...... Thanks,
Bill

Mine doesn't. But then again it depends on how hard you hit it after
freewheeling.

Actually, it's not dropping to 4th... it's the torque converter unlocking
then locking back up.
