Question about 1985 Ford Bronco
When I turn the key I'm not getting power to the syliniod from the little red wire that makes the the syliniod ingage, but if I use a jumper wire from battery to the post marker with an S then the Bronco will start.
If you have play or wear in the mechanism that the key switch move's,it willnot give enough throw to move the power switch at the lower half of the column.Look under the dash where your brake pedal is and on the steering column you will see a 4x3 tan box that has 1 plug with quit a few wires in it.There is also a metal rod that comes down from the upper part of the column and go's to it.That's the main power switch.The metal rod move's when you turn the key and there will be play inside of the column between the key switch and the rod if it's worn.Pull the switch off,you can run it manually by moving the switch where the rod goes in.There is adjustment in the switch by loosening the 2 screw's and pushing up toward's the top.You can turn the vehicle on,start it and shut it off by this switch.If it start's from the switch manually your column is worn and need's to be repaired or you can run a temporary wire from the batt to a push button and then to the solinoid.Hope this was helpfull.

Is a Manual or Automatic transmission?. It could be an ignition switch, Clutch switch(manual) or Park/Neutral switch(Auto)
