How do you remove an ignition control module on a 1989 ford bronco 2

If it is mounted on the side of the distributor, it takes a special tool to get to the mounting screws. Then there are tabs or pins that go up into the distributor.

I have a unique problem: the ignition switch in my son's 1989 Beretta now turns freely when you insert the key. We bought a new ignition, and were removing the steering wheel when he got a screw stuck in...

You can bypass the old system and install a lock and ignition switch like the old cars w/o locking steering. It's not a good idea. I would think about asking a locksmith to help or replace the steering column.

1989 Ford Bronco. When I hooked up my battery I can hear the high pressure fuel pump running even though the key is turned off. I can start the truck up and it will run for a while. I took it for a spin...

if the key is off and the fuel pump still running then the fuel shut off switch and or the fuel pump is bad and needs replaced. More than likely the fuel pump might need to be replaced. (my 86 5.0 did the samething)

How do i put the start ignition switch in a 1989 ford bronco? it looks like a 2 seperate prong thing with 2 metal whole at the other end for guessing it goes in the dash or some thing next to...

hi, although i havnt worked on this particular car, they're pretty much the same throughout. you'll first have to take off the shroud behind the steering wheel which surrounds the ignition barrel, there should be screws/torx underneath which secure this. once removed you should be able to see the ignition barrel and a small retaining screw/s holding it into the frame. undo these. turn the key two clicks i think, just before the car starts. underneath the barrel you will notice two little spring loaded pins which you have to push up with a screwdriver so you can wiggle the barrel out. next just unclip the electrical connections, pull them through one at a time and the barrel should slide free. if you mean youve lost the keys and want to replace the barrel im not sure! hope this helps mate, Rob.

My 1989 ford bronco 4x4 full size,the ignition key wont turn at all,so because its locked up i cant replace key and tumbler from the outside,Is it possible to fix from the inside.

Try spraying brake clean or something to break up the dirt in the tumbler. It is probably gummed up from years of use. If you can free up the pins and springs in the tumbler it will turn. If not you will have to drill it out. Good luck.

89 Bronco, ignition spins freely, replaced ignition key lock with no results

It sounds like the rack is broken inside the column.The gears would bind from old,hard grease and cause the already thin pot metal rack to break.The steering wheel and the upper column has to come apart to replace the rack,brass gear and the actuator/gear.
