Why does your 1985 bronco only start in drive and not park?

A bad or mis-adjusted neutral safety switch would cause this. It is bolted to the side of the transmission near the shift linkage. Basically it's the only thing down there with an electrical wire harness going to it.

there is really no adjustment that can be made, because it is a hydraulic system, the only thing that can be done is to have a new clutch installed.

You can start driving lessons at 16, and drive with a licenced driver, but you can only take the drivng test and drive unaccompanied at 17.

Yes, but it will increase wear on the front part of the drivetrain, and also might decrease mileage a little. I only lock the hubs when I might need 4wd in winter.

The neutal safety switch will allow engine to start in park or neutral only. You must fix problem.

Size. The Bronco is a full sized vehicle. The Bronco II is the miniature compacted version. The full size broncos came with larger v8 engines and the Bronco II was designed during the first gas panic as a Fuel saver. While they only get 22mpg, on the highway it was almost double what the full size broncos got in mileage, except for the 4.9 I6, which could get 20mpg in the fullsize. In addition, the bronco ii was based off of the ford ranger, while the ford bronco was based off of the ford f150.

it is most likely the neutral safety switch. this is the mechanism that only allows the engine to start in neutral. i got a truck that does the same thing.

The transmission is shot ... or very very low on fluids.

Most likely, you've failed to remove the freshly created diskette from the drive, and your machine is booting from the floppy rather than the hard drive.

The steering of your Bronco could be pulling because your alignment may be off. Only a certified mechanic can reset your alignment.

The Ford Bronco has been a part of America since the year 1996. This makes the timing of how long it has been around, for about seventeen years. The company only made the Bronco for the year 1996 and no more were made thereafter. ======================================================= The full size Ford Bronco had model years ( 1966 to 1996 ) The first answer is not mine , the 2nd answer is , Helpfull

If 4wd you can in an emergency only. The vehicle will be very hard to control as a front wheel drive only.If 4wd you can in an emergency only. The vehicle will be very hard to control as a front wheel drive only.

my 1984 bronco with a 5.0 and automatic transmission weighs about 5200lbs. Options on yours may be different making the weight slightly different. but it would only be slightly different.

because it was really bad on gas and couldn't carry enough people There were not selling enough of them to justify continuing production. They only produce what sells. The Bronco simply quit selling.

You can start your engine several times, but you can probably only drive for about 30 minutes. When this happens, GO TO A MECHANIC OR AUTHORIZED DEALER RIGHT AWAY (or call roadside assistance)!

check your frame ground try the ignition module you need a special 5.5mm tool the part is only about 30 bucks

If your antivirus can't remove it, your only option is to completely wipe the drive and start afresh with extra protection.
