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.

Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.

How do you remove ignition switch on 1989 Ford bronco.

easiest way is to remove fuse panel cover, there are 2 9/16 bolts that hold the sterring coloum to the dash, remove them. coloum will drop down and allow easy access to the ignition switch. disconnect wire plug ( already having the battery disconnected of course) remove 2 nuts that secure it on to the colum and do reversal for install.

Take your Bronco to an Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. Offhand a new ignition switch would seem like a good idea, because the fuelpump should not be working in the ACC position.
If a new ignition switch does not help the fuelpump problem the pump is wired to an accessory. You need to look up the fuse info in an owners manual.
