Q: Ignition switch stuck

Ignition switch is stuck in the On position.

Hello! The Jeeps, Dodges and Chryslers of your vehicle's generation commonly encounter that problem. It is usually caused by the key tumbler in the ignition switch seizing up, or by broken pins inside the tumbler. Usually, the key tumbler will seize up due to lack of lubrication, or debris contamination; a little cleaning with WD-40 will usually free this up. If the pins are at fault, the tumbler may have to be rebuilt by a locksmith, though it's best to replace the tumbler with a new one, versus rebuilding one. I suggest having a technician, such as the staff provided by YourMechanic, inspect the stuck ignition switch issue, and replace it if necessary.
