Question about 1986 Ford Bronco

2 Answers

1977 ford bronco wont start just clicks. have replaced starter,celinoid I have a 1986 ford bronco, and it is doing the same thing yours is, everytime i turn the key theres a clicking noise from the celonoid area, i replaced the celonoid and the starter, and it did not change anything, i also replaces battery, i followed all wires some are a little corroded but nothing you wouldnt see in an older truck. Someone told me to check the relay cable from the celonoid to the started i have not replaced it but it does not look like it needs to be replaced. i talked to a mechanic and he said it sounds like either your alternator is locked up or your engine is, and my alternator was not locked up so i brought it to him to see what he said ut he hasnt got to look at it yet. if you think you know something please let me know

Bad ground wire on battery,if everything dims in vehical while turning ignition and I mean from bright to almost nothing thats what is wrong,if not some have a small fusible link to solenoid that blows or gets disconnected or corroded.
your ground wire will look fine but maybe have broke or corroded connection inside or on ends,had same problem with more than one vehical.easy check use a jumper cable from negative on battery to alternator bracket and give it a whirl.

I would check all wires. if there good i would try jumping the celinoid to be sure it is good. then have the battery tested, and if thats not it have the starter tested new parts aren't always good

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...


it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable ends.it takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.

1986 ford bronco 2 4wd wont turn over and clicks


Check the starter solenoid on the passenger side near the battery under the hood, the small terminal is the lead from the ignition switch, when the key is held in the start position there should be 12 volts at that terminal.. the wire to that terminal just pushes on.

1977 ford bronco wont start just clicks. have replaced starter,celinoid


If you are only getting clicks then the problem could be one of a few things. check your grounds for corrosion, breaks, and tightness against the frame/ motor. If that checks out, then follow your positive leads and insure that they are all tight. last but not least check to insure your battery is strong enough. you could have a dead cell in your battery, and that would cause you to not get enough juice to turn the engine over.
