Dead Bronc-ignition module?

The other day I was drivin home and my truck died 1/4 mile from home. I just shut off, I pushed it home, the battery and starter are fine, I can hear the fuel pump buzzin. It just cranks over and doesn't start, sounds good when It cranks over. Could it be anything other than the ignition module, coil, maybe crankshaft position sensor? The ignition module has been changed once before.

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

Are you referring to the TFI module?

If that was going bad, then his truck would stall when it gets hot, and not run properly (or at all) until it cools down again. If it all out failed, i would imagine that the truck wouldnt start

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

lal357,
are you thinking of the PIP pickup sensor inside the distributor?
possibly, also could be yuor coil OR plugged fuel filter. first determine if you have spark and/or fuel...

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

no it wasnt the coil or any of those it was held into the bottom of the dist. by 2 screws and you have to put some di-electric grease on the plate and the specail tool for the screws is a life saver mine jsut went out no notice at all the first time in the middle of the woods

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

FORD used to put those TFI modules on the dist itself but then moved them to the fender with a hd heatsink on them because they got so damn hot! i don't know what year they changed it but that's probably the source of the confusion... if there's a way to move it to the fender, I would!

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

It was the ignition module, I just replaced it. it's located on the side of the distributor w/2 screws, didn't know I needed a special tool until none of my sockets would fit. I ended up pullin the dist. because the intake manifold was in the way. When I put it back the timing was off, but I got it close to where it was before, i'll just take it to a shop and pay another $40.00 buckz for them to fix my mistake.

Re: Dead Bronc-ignition module?

so did they change the dist. on the laterz with the remote module or is it just a special wiring harness???

might be something to look into, for us earlier TFI-IVs guys [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], being that my module has been in there for 11 years already, i had considered keeping a spare [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
