Question about 1990 Ford Bronco

1 Answer

Transmission bronco 90'

I have a bronco Eddie Bauer 1990 8Cyl 5.0L
As i was driving last night i heard a loud noise, wasn't sure if i catched a big hole on the road or what, but two minutes later i realize that the automatic transmission wasn't shifting pass second gear.
Any info of what could it be? is this common in an old bronco to break from a minute to the other?
Is it necesary to replace the entire transmission? and if so how much could it be for part and labor?

1994 bronco eddie bauer. I have no brake lights

I think there are 2 switchs on that brake pedal. You are right tho about the brake switch causing your problem.
If you fix your brake light problem your other problem will be fixed also.. check to see if the wires at the brake pedal switch are energized. I am betting on a ground problem.

The dash switch can affect the operation of the rear key switch. 1st thing to do is replace the dash switch and that will prob fix it all.
