Headlight switch turns my Bronco off?!


Sounds like a weak connection somewhere close to the battery.
The alternator should be able to keep up with the extra electrical load not to mention the storage capacity of the battery. So if the headlights are killing power to the key switch, something is weak between the battery and the key.
Could be a corroded cable, connection at the solenoid, or in the fuse box.

I have an 89 ford bronco and it wont turn over


Fords require 10 + volts to activate the solenoid.
A faulty solenoid, weak battery, or bad connections can cause the solenoid to click. Especially a battery with a dead cell that looks like it is charged.
If the solenoid is clicking the neutral safety switch is ok. If you are only hearing relays click, take a test light and check the 16 gauge wire on the solenoid for voltage with the key in start position.
Also jumper that post with the battery post on the solenoid to crank the engine.

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...


it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable ends.it takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

Weak spark + 1988 ford bronco


check the voltage of the b+ terminal of the ignition coil (primary side) with a cheap multimeter while cranking. low voltage to the primary will cause low voltage on the secondary. also recheck all ground paths from the ignition module. ensure good connection from coil to module. note: new parts are not "known good parts" until it runs.--> IG.MOD.

1977 ford bronco wont start just clicks. have replaced starter,celinoid


If you are only getting clicks then the problem could be one of a few things. check your grounds for corrosion, breaks, and tightness against the frame/ motor. If that checks out, then follow your positive leads and insure that they are all tight. last but not least check to insure your battery is strong enough. you could have a dead cell in your battery, and that would cause you to not get enough juice to turn the engine over.
