Why not just replace the lock cylinder? Much easier than bypassing the security system. And do you really want anybody to be able to start your Jeep with a screwdriver?

Lock cylinders can be tricky little buggers. Just take your Jeep to the dealer and let them fix it. Won't cost too much.

It was a feature on the higher-end sub-models of the XJ in later years. My 2000 "Classic" has it. The "Sport" did not.
