I suspect your starter isn't engaging the drive gear. Take the starter off and test it.

Also since your just starting with this Bronco recommend you find a Haynes manual for it.

Unbolt starter and run it down to any chain auto store and they can check it for free. Also, follow the ground wire from the battery down to the block/frame and make sure it ain't corroded.

im a dumb ass the charger said the battery was charging and it lasted a couple of days before dying, so in the end it just needed a battery. thanks for the help though
