Hello Everyone, OK! i have a 1989 bronco 5.0l xlt 33x12.5x15. Friday 1/15/16 going to work started acting up. losing power, and then riving up to 40k then check engine light came on. made it to a mechanic shop, they looked at and thought electrical but they don't work on electrical. gave me a place to go that nothing but vehicle electric.not open weekends. what i have done so far myself is change fuel and EEC relays no cure. i have 40 psi at fuel rails pressure good. now comes the head scratching part. I can not get the codes. yes i have a ford obd 1 code reader i have used on truck before and it worked. this time it didn't preform the test, i went and did the Manuel jumpers to test no code flashes at the check engine light or meter. what i did notice which ever test method i did the fuel pumps would stay running( never did that before with the ford tester). what the bronco doing now still losing power when giving gas, strong smell exhaust like to rich mixture, idles at 10k normal 8k, and increase fuel consumption. so scratching my wondering why fuel pumps keeping running while setting up test mode (don't shut so test check cant run). Has anyone else had this problem, and anyone have a clue what to do? one more in the morning had to use starter fuild once to start, but rest of the i can drive it ( slow take off that is) and start it any time. New fuel pumps and inline filter New coil and ignition module and ignition module connector New temp sensors one to gauge and one to computer Computer good mechanic did have spare put it in same thing happening Now i am think only thing is to find a complete engine harness from comp on. any help would be greatly appreciated thank you Duane.
