I just bought bronco and first week it cranked every time, then after putting it in shop to have a couple leaks fixed it started this. Actually cut off on way home from shop so I thought it was something they had done. Would not re-crank at first, finally got it started and took it back by shop and they tried to tell me it was related to an aftermarket anti-theft system that was causing it. It cranks most times but sometimes will not crank and I can usually come back later and crank it. It has cut off on me going down the road 3x in past week, cranked right back up 1 of the times but the other 2 it took 15-20 minutes. How to fix? How much should I expect it to cost me to have it fixed?
Bronco will just "die" while going down the road. After sitting for a while, it will start back up. Usually has not happened in problem traffic. I have not replaced the ignition module yet. I found this site while searching for a solution to my problem.
Starts, dives a little and the will stall out when you come to a stop. Sometimes will restart in 20-30 mins, but will stall again. Just spent >500 to fix but still happened again today.
Sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldn't. Checked everything, had the cylinder replaced, and other electrical do dads before finally installing a push button starter. Works good now.
