Does your '88 have an accessory position?
 
My '88 owners manual speaks of an accessory position on the ignition switch, but mine won't turn past the locked position. Wondering if maybe they don't have it. My Wrangler is probably the most base model. No door locks, etc.

Should it have it? Should I try harder and force it? Take the column apart?

Mine has off, then a click forward is the ignition on, then one more forward starts the jeep. If you push in then turn the key towards you from the off position it is the accessory position.

I would assume mine is absolute base model, 4 banger, no center console, soft top, and half doors with no locks, I don't even think it had full carpet in it. The only option in it that I can think of is an ash tray and cigarette lighter (which may have been standard?)

Accessory is the same as on. Nothing is broken mine does the same. No traditional accessory past off.

So is mine broken? I have an accessory position, I use it every day to listen to the radio in the parking lot. Push in and turn one click towards you from off.

My ignition pushes inward, like I would expect it to do for accessory. But it refuses to turn, and I don't want to break something that might be working normally.

So we're still not sure.

Wranglers have accessory position. ON is NOT the same. In the "ON" position, the ICM is powered up. You will burn up your ICM if you leave the power on it, not running, for more than a minut or so.

If you can't get to the acc spot, your lock is worn out or the ignition switch is out of adjustment.

I am 100% sure a 88 Wrangler has an accessory position.

Have you tried jiggling the key around a little? The ignition may be worn and the key is not in the right place?

Yeah, I've wiggled it every which way. I guess I will have to open up the column and take a look. I might just replace the lock cylinder, because the key is in pretty bad shape. Thanks for all the replies.

I didn't know the ACC position was there. Went out and gave it a shot and it works.
