Question about 1990 Ford Bronco
When i changed out the ignition switch on colum the plug was a little melted. why is the plug melted? sometime the truck will start and run for awhile then die, and not start again unless i losen the bolts on the ignition swith and reajust it. the truck ran fine before i changed the switch except for the turn signal and blower moter would not always work unless you wiggled the key ignition. so today i droped the steering colum and found that the starter ignition switch on the colum was popping in two pieces, the plastic plug housing was seperating from its metel housing. and the plug itself was a little melted but the conections looked good. so temperarely i put a zip tie around it to hold it good and tight while i went to the parts store, i had no more problums withe the turn signals or blower moter anymore, but on the way home the truck shut off and would not fire back up, it would turn over but not start. so i reached under the dash and cut off the zip tie and wiggeld the igniting stated switch and continued home, however i had to continue this procedure over and over on the ride home. then i put the new ignition switch in and the truck either wont start or it will run for awhile and die again, and then not start again unless i losen the bolts and slide idt back and forth on the colum. can u tell me what the problums is? and why would the plug be a little melted? all the rest of the wires look good
