I have a 88 bronco 2 Everything was fine until yesterday it had no power what so ever I took two fuses out of it because they went bad but I replaced them I have no power in my dash board or nothing but I...

See if the ignition coil has power to it with key on. Does anything work with key on? Like the warning lights and gauges? Radio and wipers? If the ignition switch is not getting power to it and sending it out, with key in on, accessory, or start-then nothing will work, no starter, no ignition, no accessories.

Recheck all the fuses. Check if you have power to the switch-probably a fusible link off the battery is the supplier of power to the switch, although it might be a maxi fuse.. A voltmeter or test light will be of great help to you in checking for power.

Why dont i have power when i turn my key on in 1991 ford bronco

Either power is not getting to the switch-check for an ignition fuse or a fusible link just off the battery-or power is not being transmitted through the switch-in that case, replace the electrical part of the ignition switch.

There should always be a hot wire going to the switch-it is hot at all times, just waiting to be sent somewhere through the switch to run, accessories, or start. First check if you have power to the switch. If not, may need to consult a wiring diagram, but likely a fusible link near the battery has failed.

No power,no dash lights,no power to fuse box or ignition switch

Check your fusible links. There will be one main one at the starter relay. You'll find it bolted to the fender nearest your battery (passenger side). One link controls the majority of the power in the bronco. A word of caution though... If you replace it and your new link blows again, you have a short somewhere that you'll have to track down.

79 bronco wont start, cranks and fires but dies when the key is let go. Replaced solenoid and ignition unit

make sure you are getting fuel to the carb. Maybe replace fuel filter, spark plugs, and plug wires. They are cheap enough and would elliminate them from the problem. If it still acts that way then maybe the carb needs servicing.

Cant got it to turn over

Don't know if you have a 1 or 2 small terminal solenoid. You should be able to take a power source and remove the small wire at the solenoid and hit the small terminal with power to get the current through the solenoid.
Then if it cranks the ignition switch or small wire from the ignition switch is no good.

You should be able to check the starter with the heavy wire from the solenoid. If you tap the heavy starter wire with a hot wire from the battery it should arc or turn over. If it does not, the starter is dead.

If you do not know the history of the truck, someone may have a kill switch rigged to the solenoid.

Does my 1987 ford bronco 2 auto,4x4 have a timing

Belt, remove the the front plastic cover which covers the Timing Belt to see if the belt is stripped of teeth, same as the old Ford Pinto motor.. remove dist cap and watch rotor rotation, see if it is spinning... Ignition Modules are a major issue with those in that year also... check module also...

Ignition switch

lol ok. turn the key until all the lights on the dash come on. then there is a really small hole just under the switch that you will have to put a really small screwdriver in and hit it to push the lock button. while you do that pull the switch out. and just push the new one in and thats it
