Question about 1992 Ford Bronco
I gotta 92 automatic bronco with a 302 in it. I put on a starter selenoid, new cables and gotta new battery. All the wires are on correctly and the ignition use to at least turnover. Now, nothing. ignition dead. Doesn't make a sound. It cranks over when I put a screwdriver to the selenoid, so I know its not the starter. ( I bought 2 starter selenoids just to test one with a screwdriver). I'm not worried about the alternator at least until I get it running. I sprayed all the fusable links with WD40, so I could see if it is a loose wire. That' an ongong issue. Lot of wires. I am almost positive it has something to do with the ignition. I don't know much about ignitions and I am on a budget, so I'd like to fix it myself. Any suggestions?
First place you need to look is the battery. Make sure it has 12v minimum. Next, check the small wire that goes to the solenoid. With the key turned to "start" it should have 12v there. If not, check the neutral safety switch, usually found on the transmission where the linkage goes into the unit. Generally if it fails you still will have power through it when in neutral but sometimes not. If no power coming into or out from switch, check ignition switch itself, usually on top of steering column under the dash. One Item I don't understand...Spraying wd40 on fusible links shows you what? and how? Links should be checked for voltage at both ends with a volt meter or test light.
