I had that problem yesterday and researched the web. Found out underneath the steering column, take the bottom plastic cover off, there is a orange wire for the tow/haul. It's actually 2 white wires with orange covering. It was broke.

This morning when I started my '98 Voyager. It started for about five seconds then turned off. This happened three times. Started it one more time and revved the engine. Same thing, five seconds then off. Tried one more time but now the odometer and mileage lights do not work and it will not turn over at all. My van's ABS light comes on, all dash displays stop working (gas, speed, temp, mileage, gear that I am in), the engine light comes on, my brakes sound like they drag when stopping at times

Couple of questions on a 1997 4 cyl Ford ranger; engine light stays on all the time. Sometimes its blinking nut mainly just stays lit. In addition the O/D off light comes on to let me know its off for no apparent reason.
