86 Bronco II intermittent problem with pump kicking on when starting

Asked by Sep 13, 2017 at 08:48 PM about the 1986 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Bronco will die while driving and won't start for a while
(minutes to hours). When it won't start, don't hear the
relay on key on. Then out of nowhere will start. Changed
pump and relay and no dice. Just put a different computer
in it hoping that fixes it but if not what else could it be?
Inertia switch? Ignition switch behind the manifold?

1 Answer


Check the ignition switch, not the key and tumblers, it's located down on the steering column, I have seen these move slightly out of position and cause a no start, even a no crank problems before, sometimes they just wear out and I have even seen them start coming apart. HTH
