Question about 1989 Ford Bronco II
There were only a few blown fuses in the power distribution box. All of them have been replaced. Now it just clicks when I turn the key over.
If you buy a Haynes manual for it, you could have it running in no time-relatively speaking. It's probably the fender mounted solenoid for the starter motor that is clicking. All auto parts stores sell Chilton and Haynes repair manuals for specific vehicles, or groups of vehicles. The Haynes manual is superior for the same price-again relatively speaking. That's been my experience over the last 30 years buying repair manuals.
If I recall, the fender mounted solenoid connects the battery to the starter motor - a short cable from the battery positive to the solenoid, and a longer cable from the solenoid to the starter motor. The small wire at the solenoid is from the ignition switch in start. In start, the wire has power and turns the solenoid on, so connecting the battery to the starter. If this is what you hear clicking, kind of narrows it down to 4 things: the battery is too low to crank the engine over, or the battery to starter connections are failing, or the starter solenoid is bad, or the starter is bad. A repair manual could give testing procedures to decide from there. Once you get the start circuit working, it may fire right up. I would run it until the engine had fully warmed up-so the oil is hot- and then shut it off and drain the oil and coolant, and put in new spark plugs at least. The beginning of a whole new maintenance schedule. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

Bad battery or corroded battery terminals. and check the heavy cable that goes to starting motor for corrosion

Fuse Panel is located inside the passenger compartment, under the drivers-side of the instrument panel...
To access the fuses, release the retaining tabs...
...then pull the cover from the dash
Fuse panel and fuse identification-Ranger/Bronco II (clic for zoom)
Power Distribution Box
Located under the hood, inthe engine compartment. It houses the fuses and relays for most of theunder hood components which are not controlled by a dash mounted switch(such as the alternator, fuel pump, ECM, etc.). The fuses and relaysare replaced in the same manner as the fuse panel inside the vehicle.The power distribution box cover is hinged on one end and utilizes aretaining latch on the other. Simply release the latch and lift thecover up to gain access to the fuses and relays.
Good luck (remember rated this help).
