GloveBox Lock

Is your ignition key supposed to work your glove box too?

I doubt that, actually I have a hunch that any Wrangler ignition key works for the locks, but maybe I'm crazy and wrong.

However, what might be causing hte problem is the same thing as mine. When you go to lock it, open it up and hold back that little locking tab and you turn the key, then close the lid. To unlock, you have to push down a little bit.

mine does everything but the center console. on my todo list-take off the door and take it to a locksmith to be re-keyed. only prob is finding one-most seem to be mobile, no shop.

Other possibilities:

Glovebox was broken into and replaced in the past
Glovebox lock is just broken
