You could but the color of the wires might not be the same and it would take forever to figure out how if youve never done it before of know the wiring diagram or how to read one. and if the two trucks have push button 4x4 the switches might be the same

How to check horn relay on 95 Riviera

Easiest way is to swap in another relay. Many others on the car will be the same relay, same part number.

To test a relay, put voltage across the coil side of relay with jumper wires, and check that the power side of relay then shows continuity. If it does, relay is good.

4WD Problem

Shut off the vehicle. Place the transfer case indicator into whatever gear you want and then start the vehicle. You placed the transfer case into neutral while the engine was running in gear that's why all the grinding.

1989 bronco II 4wd automatic. sister recently gave it to me. been in 4wd one time years ago. has automatic hubs. will not go into 4wd. lights by push button do no light up. any suggestions.

There is a motor on the back of the transfer case that controlls the 4x4 and it will "gum" up from lack of use. I would start with that.

4wd wont engage on my 86 bronco II. Push button 4wd isn't working and I can't find the fuse (inline) to check if it's blown.

Engage the 4wd and go underneath and tap the 4x4 motor to engage it, it is probably just stuck. More than likely its not a fuse.

I am going to tow my 87 Bronco II behind my motorhome. It is a 5sp. I believe I am to put the tranny in neutral and the transfer case in neutral, is that right? Also do I unlock the steering wheel?

all the wheels and transmision should be free to move and for your piece of mind, if the car fell off the towhitch,you would want the car to head towards the soft verge, NOT towards oncoming lock the steering wheel turned slightly right.also make sure you fit an anti snake device.

I have an 87 Bronco, full size with 5.0L efi. I can shift from 2wd to 4wd his with no problem. I can also put the transfer case in Neutral. The transfer case will not go into 4wd low. Also must shut...

This is going to be in the synchros in the T-case. The most economical way is to either have the unit rebuilt or replaced used. If you need any other info, let me know.

I installed a steering column in my 87 Bronco from another one. There is a wiring harness coming from the steering wheel about 16 inches long with a female plug on the end. There is no visible male plug...

there should be a one under the dash that it hooks to, kind of a half moon shaped connector. perhaps it still attached to the one that came out of it?

Ignition switch

lol ok. turn the key until all the lights on the dash come on. then there is a really small hole just under the switch that you will have to put a really small screwdriver in and hit it to push the lock button. while you do that pull the switch out. and just push the new one in and thats it
