This is my first post on Jeep Forum, but I've been reading ever since I got my 2000 XJ back in May. After some searching, I narrowed the problem down to either the ignition switch or lock cylinder. The guy who sold it to me said someone tried to break into the vehicle and ever since the radio randomly cuts out, the turn signals stop working every so often, and the passenger side power window switch stopped working.
The turn signals haven't been working for a while so today I took a look around the steering column. When I took the lock cylinder out, the turn signals came back. I noticed some damage around the cylinder (see pic), and the key feels loose. The video shows how barely touching the key starts and stops the alarm chimes.
Is this a lock cylinder or ignition switch problem (or both)?
