|rebelBullDawg325||hmm. did you press it down while turning your key backwards? if that didnt do anything i suppose that there is something broke that needs fixin|

|jonbugh||I actually found that on the console last night and was playing with it, but it doesn't seem to do anything on mine. Lovely!|

|rebelBullDawg325||theres like this little thingy on the steering column you have to push down and will let you turn the key back towards you a little more before you pull the key out. this "locks" the ignition so you have to have the key in before you can start it again. it took mme about a month to figure it out on mine|

|Triple88a||good question ^. If you cant figure it out, how about a hidden start button?|

|rebelBullDawg325||are you sure you're locking the ignition when you take the key out? i wasnt used to having to do this when i first got my jeep. and i thought for a while that mine was the same way. but once i started locking the ignition when taking the key out, it made it so they actual key was all that could start it.|

|dwdrums801||I just replaced mine it cost me about 50-56 bucks each part (tumbler and ignition switch)|
|02-13-2008 12:02 PM|
The stealership wants $136 for the part. They charge $17 to re-key, so the actual part is around $120. Isn't that just a tad bit high??? I replaced the ignition switch in one of my older Mustangs a couple of years ago and I was thinking the part was only about 20-25 dollars?

Thanks guys! I'm not overly concerned about it because, like you said, all a thief that really wanted in has to do is just unzip the window and there they are. I'll see what the Jeep dealership says today!

|Vector6||i wouldnt sweat it, a car thief will just knock out the ignition first anyway...|

|jeeperman||I don't know what the cost would be, but you should be able to go to the stealership and get an ignition tumbler that will match the rest of your locks. That way, you won't have to carry 2 keys if you lock your rig or your glovebox, etc.|

|compshooter||As bpowa said, just need a new ignition tumbler. However, you will need to rekey if you want to have one key for everything. Or just do as most of us on the board do, don't bother locking your Jeep.|
|02-13-2008 12:13 AM|
Well, if ya hadn't gone and told everybody in the world, who would have known? You just wouldn't have to worry about losing your keys anymore.
You will get a new key with the ignition switch. Just keep the old one for the doors, ect.
BTW... Welcome to our little forum... the Holiday Inn Express for jeeps.

Car Keys aren't needed to start our Wrangler!!!
Need some help here... our 1998 Wrangler can be started with anything. You can stick a penny in the key slot and start her up. I first noticed this when I was able to remove the keys while driving. I'm assuming the ignition switch is just messed up. Am I going to have to completely re-key the Jeep if I swap the switch out?
