You have pulled the wiring harness out of the 97 Explorer and put it in the 98 Ranger? If it was a clean replacement then there is some troubleshooting to do with the Explorer harness. Sorry but you have a lot of wiring tracing in you future. If I remember what 410Customs posted about Explorer to Ranger conversions the two models you mention are not plug and play but require some changes in pinouts with the various plugs. You will need a full wiring diagram of both models to find the differences and change the plug pinouts to get everything to work.
