interesting:beer:banghead..there are a few wires cut on the connectors and the bronco seems to be running fine. Figured it may be the amp..I wonder if some one else know what that thing is for before I go through the trouble of splicing those wires.
It's not the amplifier, but could be the amp connector? do the wire colors & connector look like the ones I posted by Steve83?
and maybe w can start excluding some thAngs;
Here is a Chime pic by Travis in his 94
Chime. "the buzzer is directly to the right of the steering colum under the dashboard. it is a white box about 3X1X1/2 inches; if you have a higer trim package (XLT or higher, however my XL E150 has it) there is a "reminder package" it sounds the chime when the lights are left on, the vehicle is off and the door is opened. If you are having trouble with it not working or working intermittently then it's probably the tumbler. (the piece the key goes into)."

Doesn't look like the chime
connectors do look similar however..but instead of gray one is white. The diagram shows that if it were radio/amp related the plugs should be gray and black....and the amount of wires on those two plugs on the pic dont seem to add up to the radio/amp withres. Also the plugs for the radio/amp are one row and these are double rowed.
ok, Now I'm thinking that it could be an after-market alarm, etc.?
I went thru a lot of the usual component Links in my broncolinks.com site and didn't see anything that looks like the pics you posted.
Can you see what is embossed on the top of that box?
And how is it mounted/ double-back tape; non-Ford screws?
It looks to be factory mounted on top of the a/c duct right behind the 4x4 switch. The wiring seems to bundle into the wire harness under the dash towards the fire wall. I am currently at work but will dive deeper into this once I get home. Based on the connects and the way the wires are bundled it doesnt seem like it is an after market alarm. If you look at the pic there is a screw of some sort holding that thing thru the vent. also there is no other wires coming out of that thing. Those two pulgs are the only ones on it.
ok, not da amp; because; Location in a 96; from 1996 Bronco-F-Series Workshop Manual; \"...amplifier is behind the radio, mounted to a bracket on the instrument panel (04320). Disconnect radio amplifier wire harness. Remove two radio amplifier retaining screws. Slide amplifier slightly away from instrument panel bracket (to disengage the upper tab to instrument panel bracket) and then down to remove...\"
Mine is a 94 so Im guess it would be very similar to the 96..just making sure. and you are correct amp is not based on the workshop manual. I am going through it as well. I did see a harness that steve83 had in his spare parts list and I dont see those connectors on their either.
