How do you remove the computer on a 1988 full size bronco?

It depends on what you mean by computer. The '88 bronco has an TFI control module mounted on the distributor. It is held on by 2 Phillips screws and should be relatively easy to take off without removing the distributor.

Why would an '89 Bronco II not spark if you replaced the TFI and DIS?

is there any corrosion on the spades of the coil?or on the connectors?you say DIS,i think distributorless ignition system that an 89 doesnt have,is that correct?or are you meaning distributor cap?

What does it mean when i have no fire but i changed out my ignition coil and my pick up coil inside the distributor on a 1987 ford bronco 302 v8 fi?

Your coil has a positive and negative side and if there is no power to the positive side you will not have any spark: However, if you have no ground to the negative side you will have the same problem. Check for power and ground with a volt meter.To check for power, connect red lead from volt meter to positive side of coil and black lead to negative side of battery, you should read 12 volts with key on. To check ground, connect black lead from volt meter to negative side of coil and red lead to positive side of battery, you should read 12 volts with key on.

Bronco won't start one click is all you get. starter is good. replaced solenoid and alternator. still the same problem. cleaned up all connections and terminals. what else could it be?

Are you sure the battery has enough juice (13.5volts)? Is the engine locked up? Try turning the motor by hand. If the engine is not seized, take the starter off and bench test it. Recheck your negative battery cable, a very good chance your problem lies there. The same thing happened to my 1995 full size bronco today. I took the battery cables off cleaned each one, and still the same problem. I replaced the starter, solenoid, finally noticed my ground wire from my intake to the fire wall was charred. So I checked my lower battery cable connections and my ground was not connected. I replaced my firewall ground and replaced my battery ground wire and all my problems were solved. Even my dash readings were fixed, I always had crazy readings on my dash (temp, oil pressure and amp gauge) all were fixed with the installation of my new ground wires.
