1987 bronco 2.. Ignintion staying on with door open

1987 bronco 2.. i have been fighting it for a month now. first i floated it in a mud pit in the woods. then got pulled out drove home fine, next day go to start it and click,click,click. starter not spining over. pulled starter off. the bendix was stuck, i figured it would, that happens all the time. so i have it rebuilt and i put it back on, this was about 2 days later. and it spins over and starts but then dies when i pull off the jump box. i figured the starter must have shorted out the alt. to so i had it rebuilt also. after i put it back on and go to start it i noticed that when i had the jump box hooked up the key was off but the fuel pump was on....... after tearing the whole dang wiring harness apart, and i mean the whole thing. the ignition switch was working the computer was working, there was no melted wires as i thought there would be, but the whole ignition system was on. but only while the door was open... after unpluging and testing everything and asking everyone i knew what they thought... I finally Found The Answer... I Unpluged the door chime and opened it up, a diode and a shot on the board where burned out, i pulled on off my ranger and pluged it in and fixed the problem... after about $150 and a month of headaches. now just gotta tape up all the wiring harness again. but any way just thought i should spread the word.

1987 Bronco smokes

I dont know why those other answers are assuming you have a diesel engine. Try a compression test to see if you have a broken or stuck ring on a piston. Also look at the carb to see if the choke if staying wide open.

What would make the rear antilock brake light stay on in a 1987 ford bronco?

Might possibly be the rear sensor on the top of the rear differential, very very common on those and the fords of that time.

Parts question

I don't know if your talking about a big bronco or a bronco ll. I'm really not sure about the difference in sheetmetal, you may have to take off the old door & match it up with the replacement door. As for the windows and locks, as long as both doors had power locks & windows, make sure the replacement door still has the window glass in the door assembly. You may want to take the time & test the motor on the new door, finally make sure your wires will connect with replacement door.

The fuel pump on a Bronco is located inside the fuel tank. The level sender unit and pump are usually mounted together but they can be changed individually.
You will probably need a speacial tool to seperate the flexible fuel hoses from the metal fuel pipes.
