Ignition problems.

Interesting issue with my 95 YJ. At the moment the Jeep won't start except push starting. Once I turn the key the accessories turn on, but won't attempt to start at all. To back up with more details, the ignition would never start the Jeep if the steering wheel was tilted upward any.

I haven't taken anything apart yet, but just curious if anyone else has had similar issues.

that is a common problem ( not only on jeeps )..there is a rod connected to your key switch that goes down the column to control the actual ignition switch..you can adjust that switch..it has 2 screws holding it

Thanks. I plan on taking it apart tomorrow after work so I can see exactly what's going on in the column.
