2010 jeep wrangler starting problems

My 2010 jeep wrangler sport is having a starting problem. When I go out in the mornings to start my jeep I turn the key let go and it just keeps cranking as if I am still turning the key. It will eventually start even when I am not turning the key or I can turn the key to off and immediately try again and it starts normal. What could the problem be?

Your starter is staying on. There might be a faulty connection In the ignition lock that's causing this. Or could be anywhere down the line from there. You definitely want to get this fixed. My buddy had his pinion gear in his starter stick in his old YJ. So it was engaged while driving the starter motor lit on fire after 15 mins.

Thank you I will let my husband know about that. I really don't want to risk a fire.

The key is like a "button", you push it and the computer takes over. If it cranks for a long time then you have other issues.
