View Full Version : 85 bronco electrical issue
07-06-2011, 01:10 PM
My 85 bronco donor vehicle died on me last nite while running, when I went to restart it, there was no electrical power anywhere. I hooked up a battery charger and it was fully charged. I have no power to the interior, lights ect the truck wont even click or anything. The only thing Ive noticed is that with the key on and the light switch on, there are about 3 different relays that are just constantly clicking. I plan to get ahold of a chiltons and start tracing out the wiring but curious if anyone has had this problem and has any places to suspect?
not to beat a dead pony, did you check continuity at the battery cables?

The negative was replaced a few days prior so im sure that is fine. The positive looks to be newer and just incase I ran a jumper between the postive terminal and solenoid and still same problem. I didnt have a volt meter on hand but I do need to check that the battery is at 12v instead of relying on what the cheap charger said. Ill have to wait until tomarrow tho to do any troubleshooting as the truck is 45miles away at my buddys farm.
update. -found the problem, it was a hand full of broken wires form no inner fender. all is good
