well its not the starter. something is up with the pcm which is allowing it not to start or even attempt to start. even plugged in a scanner and every system is allowing a reading except for the pcm. going to get it towed again monday morning to my girlfriends stepdads shop so he can dig deeper into the problem.

Do you have the Passive Anti Theft System bull crap? Maybe something is up with that?

ya we were also thinking that. everything is getting power correctly except for the starter so we followed wiring diagrams and traced it back to the relay in the fuse box. now im not exactly sure of everything since im not the expert so i may be miswording or sounding wrong. we plugged in a scanner to see if we could pull any codes but the scanner couldnt even pick up a signal from the pcu. every other system worked except for that.

I'd look at the insulation on every wire coming from the camlock plugs on the ecu along the exposed length. especially up close to the connectors. It also has it's own ground source wire.

Shitty deal. A few years back my Bronco crowd had a wheeling meet and greet. I got to the trail, and on the first obstacle one of my u-joints snapped in half. Easy repair, but didn't have any parts on me. So my Bronco sat out for the day.
