Ignition Switch or Lock Cylinder

3956 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  bkbishop
I have a 2000 Sahara. Recently I noticed I can remove the key from the Lock Cylinder while running. I also noticed the steering wheel doesn't lock when the ignition is turned to the off position and the key is removed.

Has anyone experienced this with their wrangler?
Is this the cylinder or the Ignition Switch Actuator Pin?

I was thinking the Lock Cylinder / key is worn and just need to be replaced. If I order a replacement Lock Cylinder is it possible to have it re-keyed to match my keys? If I am better off just ordering the Lock Cylinder /w keys what, if anything, do I need to do since they keys are chipped?
