Question about Ford Bronco II
Bought a Ford Bronco II 1989 yesterday. Runs great, looks bad, but that can be fixed. Bud when i drove on the high on way back home it was doing 5000 rpm wile driving 62/65 mile (+/- 100km). First i stardet thinking that the wheel,/ tyres are to small 205/70R15. Now i start to think that they swicht the rear axle, and got somehow the wrong diff. Does anyone know what needs to be under this car, and if i can chance it whit the axle of the first generation explorer, or a other ford. Overhere in Holland there not many B2 and parts are difficult to find.

pick up new wheel studs. using a punch hammer out the old broken off studs. push in the new studs from the back side grease the threads put your lug nut on backwards and tighten up this will pull the stud into place. as long as your wheel isnt damaged or new wheel . use a torque wrench and torque the lug nuts drive a mile or so and torque again and then after 50 miles.

Principles of Operation
The PATS uses a specially encoded ignition key. Each encoded ignition key contains a permanently installed electronic device called a transponder. Each transponder contains a unique electronic identification code out of over 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a drive-away theft. This system is known as SecuriLock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in Continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (PATS) is not compatible with aftermarket remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. If equipped the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle's powertrain control (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
This system contains a new feature named Unlimited Key Mode. This feature allows a customer to program more than eight keys to the vehicle if they request it. Each vehicle in Unlimited Key Mode is set up with a special Unlimited Transponder Security Key. This allows all the customer vehicles to share the same keys, but no other keys from outside can be used to operate the vehicles. For an individual customer, any randomly selected Security Key is acceptable. Refer to Unlimited Key Mode Programming in Key Programming Switch State Control in this section.
The PATS transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. The module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends data to the PCM.
The control functions are contained in the PCM. This module carries out all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling the engine enable. The PCM initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
All elements of the PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start.
The PATS uses a visual theft indicator. The indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS concern, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. The PATS system also flashes the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual deterrent.
The PATS will be activated and will disable the vehicle from starting if there is a:

trans problems are common with these vans unfortunatly you will probably have to rebuild or replace trans if you had solinoid replaced right away you might have saved it but not very likely

Replace the wheel studs as well as the nuts. Make sure you have the correct wheel for the vehicle and that it is sitting flat on the hub flange. If the bolt holes in the wheel are elongated, do not use the wheel. Make sure that the lugs are threading onto the studs at least the diameter of the stud (eg: A 1/2" stud diameter needs to go into the nut a minimum of 1/2") otherwise it can pull off and destroy the threads.
