Question about 1988 Ford Bronco II

1 Answer

My bronco cranks up and runs great, but when u shut it off it takes 20-30 mins to crank back up. ive changed the ignitiom module and that didnt fix it.

It acts like there is something getting hot and keeping it from starting until it cools off.

SOURCE: Truck will crank and then shut off

You will need to do your testing while the vehicle is in failure to start mode.Check wether the coil is recieving 12v and pour a little fuel down carb to see if it wants to run.If pouring a little fuel down carb makes the car try to fire up you probably have a fuel pump issue.If it doesnt try to fire you have an ignition problem.Hope you get it sorted and good luck.

Check the ignition coil or coil packs. It sounds like overheating coil(s)

Can the black box under dash thats the alarm system be removed permently

Not that simple to just disconnect it. Otherwise thieves would have no problem stealing vehicles with security systems. The black box communicates with the engine computer, and then the computer enables the vehicle to start and stay running.
That isn't a bypass technique, it is a reset procedure. Apparently it has got to the point that the reset doesn't fix the problem. Now you may need a new black box-the theft deterrent module-or it may be a problem with the ignition switch. Sounds like the box, but not sure. Ask a pro near you.
Just a heads up- that black box (TDM) can be very expensive. A company called newrockies has developed a module that bypasses the security system for good. this module signals the pcm that all is good, and no problem with the security. They sell this module for about $250. (A GM black box can be around $800, so you are better off with newrockies, and be done forever with security issues.) Google newrockies and you will find out more about it.

I have a 1988 blazer with a 4.3. It runs great for a while and sometimes it will just go dead, then i sit for a few minutes and it cranks right back up. Any suggestions?

i had a 89 blazer 4.3 was doing the same thing that was doing the same thing my problem was the crank sensor was cracked so once the engine heated up a lil the sensor would expand causeing it to have a bad reading shutting it down i changed it didnt have any problems after that.
hope this helps
