It had been happening for a while now. Every now and again my 96 Cherokee wouldn't start. A little jiggle of the handle and we were off. I knew that one day it would fail and only the jiggling of a Brazilian women during Carnival would get it to start. That day has come and I'm fresh out of Brazilian women.
I'm in the process of researching this for myself online but wanted to get the ball rolling on the forum as this is my most trusted source of information.
I've slacked with the Jeep and don't have a service manual for it and am fairly ignorant to its specifics.
First, the basics:
Where exactly is the NSS located on a 96 Cherokee (6cyl, 4 speed auto, 4WD)?
Is it possible to reach the switch from the cab and manually mess with it so I can at least start my Jeep?
I'm aware of the expense of buying a new NSS. I can't afford that. I'd rather not bypass it as I need to pass inspection (reverse lights), so my only option is to rebuild, right?
I'll leave it at that for now. If you've got experience with this I'm all ears.
Update - I've found this article (http://bc4x4.com/tech/2010/jeep-neut...ty-switch-nss/
) and it looks fairly reliable. Any one who has done this have thoughts?
