Hey all.

Working on my dads 76 CJ and he wants the ignition switch completely bypassed. Ive looked into it a lot and thought i had it all figured out, but have ran into a snag i could use help with.

I am using this picture that i found in a related thread for what each wire is.


And here is how i have the wires ran to the 2 toggle switches and 1 push button.


When i flip the toggle for ACC, the right things power up
When i flip the toggle for IGN, i can hear the fuel pump kick on & prime

The problem is when i press the push button to start. The engine turns over and starts, but when i let go of the button it dies.

The question i have now is, does the black plug with the red and black wires need to be plugged back in and hooked back up to the steering column? Or is there something else I'm missing?

Thanks in advance!

side note. if i connect the wires back to the piece that screws onto the steering column i can use a screw driver to slide the piece up and it starts up just fine......

do i need the additional red/white & black wires hooked up to the switches somehow?

Ok, so for anyone that might be interested or that finds this post later on and needs the same answer i did i got it working properly.

I ran the red/white wire from the black plug to the IGN output &
I ran the black wire to a solid ground location

After doing that everything works great and the Jeep starts up & shuts down every time!

Sounds like a good idea! Did you take any pictures of the setup? Also what did you do at the steering column?
