    I'v had it for a while and now it wont start. We replaced spark plug wires, relay switch, distributor cap, and had the ignition module checked. It starts if you move the distributor cap but wont stay started. Need help its my only transportation. It will stay running for a while but when u shut it off it wont start. Sometimes it will only run a min. We have gotten it to start by sending power to the relay switch and fuel pump with a wire to the battery. We think it might be a wire between the two thats the problem but not sure.

You might have to check for broken or cracked wires. on these trucks as well as the f150s the wire seem to short out causing these problems

1989 ford bronco 2 ignition problems maybe

It could have a weak or failing ignition coil. The other thing I can think to look for would be an exhaust restriction.. (clogged catalytic converter)

What about the fuel filter?? was it replaced?

I have an 1989 ford Bronco II. We had the fuel pump replaced as well as the fuel lines. I started a few times but then stopped, wont start again. It turns over but wont fire. Could this be spark plugs or...

Well take a plug lead off any plug and the plug and put plug in lead and rest it on the engine with the thread resting on the metal block and then spin it over if a good blue spark then coil etc is all ok BUT if no spark then the coil could be faulty or condencer OR points need cleaning and regaping to 12thou
when all in good order start and test run .
Let me know how you get on Ron

Bronco Wont Start (help please)

Check for timing gear problems. They have plastic teeth on the cam shaft gear which will shatter causing it to jump time.
