There is a ballast resistor that reduces the voltge at the coil terminals when the engine is running. When cranking the resistor is taken out of the circuit so the reduced battery voltage while cranking is sufficient for the coil to work. The resistor is most likely open. It is located on the firewall, has 2 wires going to it. It is about 4 inches long and has a metal band around it used as the mount.

Replace the ignition barrel. Inside is a lot of switches that wear out. It could also be the starter relay. Although this is least likely.

SOURCE: 89 bronco II stars then dies

if the fuel pump cutoff was tripped it would not start at all, I know this for sure, I am a Ford dealer tech and I specialize in no starts and check eng lights. If the ignition switch is bad the 2 halves of the switch will be starting to come apart, it is very common, u should be able to either see it or feel it with your hand.

SOURCE: Lost keys for a ford bronco II how can I get them replaced

take the vin along with the paper of the truck to show it you and the year to a ford dealer or mercury dealer and they should be able to help you and the other way is to call a locksmith but going to the dealership yourself will be cheaper.

SOURCE: Engine is cranking, but it wont turn over

Sounds like a fuel pump issue turn the key over as if listening to your radio and listen towards the fuel pump it will be the only noise you hear if no noise your pump is bad otherwise if you are gettin noise it could be your fuel filter.

My 1989 bronco II quit running going down the road and now it will not start back


Check all connections. Battery cables, switch to starter cables, make sure they are all tight. Make sure the starter is engaging and disengaging. Check the belts for looseness. The fact that you were driving when it happened say`s something is loose!
