Exclamation Where is the Ignition Switch located...

I have a 95 Jeep Wrangler...My book is telling me to keep the key cylinder in lock-off...To disconnect the actuator rod...And to remove bolts...But where is it actually...And what is an actuator rod...

You will have to remove the steering wheel and lower the column and remove the directional switch to do this job. Special tools are required for this. If you have never done this before I recommend you get some help that has some experience doing this. You can do more harm than good.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Wait are you talking about the electrical switch or the key switch, if you mean the electrical switch it is on the steering column sort of on the drivers side of the column below/behind the dash. The actuator rod is connected to the keyswitch and moves the ignition switch when the keyswitch is turned.

Replacing the key switch is a PIA and requires some special tools but those can be rented from Autozone for free, steering wheel puller and I think the other one is called a lock plate puller/remover. Replacing the electrical ignition switch is a PIA because of where it is but no special tools are required.

I believe he meant he wants to change the tumblers (keyswitch)
witch can get messy if you've never done it before
Correct me if I'm wrong jb1234

I just read your other post I guess its not the (key switch) ignition switch your after.
Sorry for any confusion
