Hello All!

Just purchased a 1996 Bronco XL - has been in the family a while but needs some work to be road worthy again. Has the 5.0 with 5 speed Manual. This is my first full size Bronco so have a lot to learn. I've found forums like this helpful (mostly) in the past.

Look forward to discussions and learning what others are doing!

Haha - they belong to the previous owner - my nephew - I removed them as well as the home audio speakers he had hooked up in the back. The spork is also no more!

Yes - hoping I can be disciplined with the $$$ part but got it for a song! Have been eyeballing it for years!

Yo 96BroncoNM,
Welcome and congrats on keeping the best year Bronco EVER in the family!

Find out if speed control recall work, if equipped was completed @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number); or @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or ... have VIN ready. While there, see most Ford dealer maintenance/repairs done @ any dealership nation-wide.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
To confirm current status, use this guide by jowens1126 @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than the 94-96 recall.

For any Bronco questions or to chat about it's planned modifications, it's better to post each seperately in Noobie Bronco Tech Questions. Flame free zone. This will get more attention and you can build up your post count to get into other sections such as Bronco and Ford Parts/Accessories (75 posts required to participate due to scammers who preyed on our members.).
