HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA (scared the crap out of me)

HAHA ok so I was trying to tighten my tilt column and my buddy said that I don't need a steering wheel puller... so I get the bolt off and go to pull the wheel off... AND THE JEEP STARTS TO DRIVE FORWARD no key in the ignition but it was in gear.

So apparently if you pull your steering column hard enough in a YJ you can start the engine

And just so you guys don't think I'm crazy I took a video of it doing it

thats only gonna happen with that column that loose. the column moved up pulling the ignition rod with it, moving it inside the switch. basically moved the rod the same way your key would when cranking.

Anytime you are doing something near wiring, it's best to disconnect the battery. Mostly to stop shorts, but I guess drive offs, too.

I figured you guys'd get a kick out of this, and even if you found my jeep its in my back yard... which requires you to do a 90 degree turn to get out so with the steering wheel spinning in place you'd have a hard time stealing it

I'm thinking about using my parents AAA to get it to a shop so they can fix it cause it just pissed me off today lol
