Why does only the radio on a 1999 Ranger come on with no key in the ignition?

It may be that the "Hot wire" is connected to the Hot side of a fuse in the fusebox.

Is it an "after-market" radio? It sounds like it was wired to a "hot" terminal that is not controlled by the ignition switch.

Well sometimes the radio is hooked up to the ignition itself. It is just the ignition wire, if it has a disconnecting face plate then you can turn it off by taking the face plate off. Or if you would like, you can pull the radio out and disconnect the wire from the ignition and it will not still be on when you cut the truck off.

The lighted ignition ring is held on with to retaining clips. Pry outward on each retaining ring. The lighted ignition ring will come off.

Set your light switch to "auto" on the dash and your lights will come on automatically with the ignition. Turn your light switch on your dashboard to "auto" or "automatic" and the lights will come on and off with your ignition switch.

YOU simply shut off the power switch to the radio and then turn off the ignition switch and when you restart the truck it should come out as long as the radio power is off

If it won't come out try pushing up lighlty on the shitfer ( towards radio) or to the side towards drivers seat. You should here a click and the key will turn back If this enables you to get the key out you will need to replace the shifter.

According to my Consumer Guide book : A 1999 Ford Ranger XL - 2 wheel drive - came with 205/75R14SL tires A 1999 Ford Ranger XL - 4X4 - came with 215/75R15SL all terrain white letter tires On the end of the driver's door there should be a sticker with the original wheel and tire size , along with recommended tire inflation pressure

My code was on a sheet in the glove box. Turn the radio on and an error code will be visible. Try 4362 on the radio keypad allowing time for each digit to enter. If it works, the radio will automatically come on after the last digit is entered. Good Luck!

This is extremely strange and may not have anything to do with the rain. There could be a short in the wiring system that is triggered by the atmospheric pressure in the air.

I've replaced the radio in mine more than once and never had that problem. Check the contacts and the radio itself. Maybe it's defective. You might also have the ignition switch or the whole electrical system checked.

Remove the ignition cylinder retaining ring. Poll the ignition cylinder out. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the ignition cylinder.
