Not relevant to the OP's issue, but I can't ever get my jeep to go into the ACC position... Is someting loose or worn that I can repair to get ACC back?

... For the occasional drive in movie. :)

Old Dogger was kind enough to make this into it's own post, since I had previously posted it in someone else's thread where key issues were being discussed.

I can't seem to ever get my key to turn counter clockwise to the ACC position. It goes clockwise to unlocked, on, and start just fine.

Please advise.

Did you try pushing the whole key and ears/cap thing in towards the column while turning it to the rear, or pushing down on the key lever. (Depending on year)?

Or possibly binding of the rod or electrical switch (on top of column toward the firewall).

I tried to turn my key to the ACC position today while I was sitting in a parking garage listening to my radio awaiting my time to go in for an appointment.
It took a bit of fooling around, but I got it to ACC and was able to listen to my radio without gassing myself with the engine running in a garage.
Fiddling with the lever didn't seem to help. It never went fully into ACC position, so I guess there's another thing that needs fix.....someday.

I'll start with Tophogs suggestion....someday.

Good Luck, L.M.

Try some lube spray in the lock as well. I use dry lube used on guns, but there's no electrical going through there anyway.

Does leaving the key on "On" when the engine isn't running cause damage to YJ's?

I know that it isn't usually an issue with modern distributor configurations.
