    Ive got a 98' 4.0 4x4 ranger. Last night I removed the coil pack to wire brush the ground plate. After doing so I put it back in and the truck ran fine.
    This morning I go to start my truck and the batteries dead.
    And when i jump the truck it starts, then 1-2 seconds later shuts off quickly.
    I have tested the coil pack with a meter and its fine. I cant figure out what could be wrong. Please help
