Question about Ford Bronco
After sitting for a few years, I drove it the last two days and the headlights where working. Then just stopped. Don't see a fuse for the headlights?
In almost every case this is caused by a overheated and damaged headlight switch and the large connector that goes to it, both parts are cheap and you can get the switch and the repair connector from any NAPA or Carquest auto parts store. The headlight connector and switch must be done as one repair or the new headlight switch will quickly stop working again due to a poor connection of the connector. When the connector is replaced it must be soldered the wiring harness and shrink tube for insulation of the connection, ONLY DO ONE WIRE AT A TIME.

Be sure to check and see if your wiring to frame ground is good. I am not sure that you "blew" all of this at once. There should be a ground that runs from the light harness to somewhere on the core support. Just be prepared to chase wires. Electrical gremlins are always fun.

It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.

Fuse Panel is located inside the passenger compartment, under the drivers-side of the instrument panel...
To access the fuses, release the retaining tabs...
...then pull the cover from the dash
Fuse panel and fuse identification-Ranger/Bronco II (clic for zoom)
Power Distribution Box
Located under the hood, inthe engine compartment. It houses the fuses and relays for most of theunder hood components which are not controlled by a dash mounted switch(such as the alternator, fuel pump, ECM, etc.). The fuses and relaysare replaced in the same manner as the fuse panel inside the vehicle.The power distribution box cover is hinged on one end and utilizes aretaining latch on the other. Simply release the latch and lift thecover up to gain access to the fuses and relays.
Good luck (remember rated this help).

if its throttle body, give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner while its running and hold open the throttle so it wont die. also I would check out the TPS (throttle position sensor) pretty cheap fix.
