Purchased a keyless entry car without a key

Let me get this right, you purchased a car without a key for said vehicle to start the vehicle? First off I would worry if the vehicle is stolen or not. If the vehicle is not stolen, then you will have to take the VIN to a dealer and have a key cut and program the key to your car. This will cost you an arm and a leg for a $10 key. It is best to have a spare key in case of lose of the original, so be prepared to lose both your arms and legs.

Trouble shoot repairs

Let's assume water pump was replaced because of a bearing noise. Hopefully when the belt was off, you checked all of the pulleys and their bearings. Did you match up the old and new belt for length?

The tensioner bracket has a spring in the arm. The arm may come with or without the pulley, usually its cheaper to buy the complete unit than each piece separately.
If you go to one of the autoparts stores like Autozone, they will test your alternator on the Bronco free. Especially the Diode test.

Check your belt routing, and the ground wire, if any to the alternator.
