Hi HotLana

Using a digital volt & ohm meter check the voltage to the coil if it is 12 volts go to this next step.
Use a 12 volt test light put it on the coil negative have somebody try to start the car. The test light should blink pretty fast. If it doesn't blink replace the pickup in the distributor.
Check the ground wire by the computer in the passenger side kick panel. There is a relay in their also hold on to it, it should pulsate when trying to start.

PS There was a recall on the ignition switch.
PS's Do you know how to jump start a ford at the solenoid?

Is it a BRONCO 11 or the full size? I have a 85 BRONCO 11 and every time I lose fire it has been the module (every year or two) I keep one in the glove box. I have had trouble with the computer once as FORD did have trouble with a few did't recall them but did replace mine at no cost. The bad news it will take some one with the rite machine to check it. The computer caused a skip in cool wet weather BUT They can just quit . GOOD LUCK.

Ms Lana, on an 88 engine there'll be a crank position sensor
(CPS) located near the harmonic balancer at the front of the
engine. Maybe the sensor is bad, or the wiring to it is broken
or loose. Make sure the sensor plug-in is secure.
