No Ignition Power

Post by BradSmith3531 » Wed Jan 01, 2020 12:47 pm

Hello everyone! I have a 1986 Bronco II xlt 4x4 2.9l auto that was running decent but had a few leaks so I parked it for around two months. I have fixed the leaks and try to start it but it didn’t start. The battery was bad and has been replaced but still nothing. The starter and starter solenoid are good because I can jump the solenoid prongs and it fires right up. I replaced the ignition switch on the column and still didn’t do it. There’s 12v leaving the ignition switch but there’s no power on the rest of the wire. I’ve also replaced the fusable link too and all the other fuses are good. Has anyone else had this issue or have any idea of what’s going on? Any and all help is much appreciated!!!

Still couldn’t figure out what was going with that wire so I bypassed it. New wire going from the ignition switch to the ignition control module and starter solenoid. Fired right up! The wire must have shorted out on something because now the dash lights and head light switch aren’t glitching anymore.
