Anyone available today to come out and assist me in troubleshooting this? It's hard to troubleshoot by yourself.. My son is in the hospital and I really need my jeep up and running. Thanks yall.. Chris
I'm in Colorado Springs, I'm willing to drive up and give you a hand if needed. Call me at

I'm not seeing anything wrong with the ignition switch actuator pin assembly.. Looks normal.. No broken plastic and such.. UGH.. John, I would hate to have you drive all the way up from the springs.. It's hard to troubleshoot alone..
So I don't know a lot about Jeep problems yet (not in any hurry) but I have heard with standard transmissions, you can put it in 4Lo and it will bypass the clutch safety switch to allow you to get it started. Not sure if that would work with an auto as I am assuming that is what you have. Just something to try. Hope you get it figured out.
i know you said its at the shop but i had literally this exact problem and called AAA about a year ago the starter had a dead spot and wouldnt even start to crank, for a couple of months i just had to crawl under my jeep and beat on the solenoid with something (usually a rock lol) i finally just bought a new solenoid it was easy to change
I just now saw your post and sorry for my late reply. Glad you got things figured out. I'm not great with electrical issues, but I work a few minutes away in Longmont and would've been more than happy to help you out or give you a ride. I'll PM you my cell phone in case you ever have issues again and need a hand.
