I have an 85 bronco that cranks and doesn’t start when I have the wheel turned all the way (parking on an incline).
Also when I’m making sharp turns or I turn the car stalls and dies.
It’s never done this before cars been reliable. Im thinking it’s something with ignition switch? Can this cause no spark also?

Put a test light on the + side of coil and turn key to on. Should get a light. Now turn the wheel lock to lock and see if the light goes out. A bad connection to the ignition switch can cause your issue. I always try to duplicate the failure and isolate it to a component before changing anything or you just chase failures and bad parts. The connector to ignition switch on the steering column are known for coming loose. 1 of mine does it (85 BII). I had to put a zip tie on it to make it stay firmly connected.
