How to start jeep without key
Ignition cylinder is broken on a 3 day weekend, screwing up my Death Valley trip. Is anyone willing to tell me how to start my jeep without a key? Is it really a matter of just touching two wires or have I watched too much t.v.? I am removing the cylinder tonight and can't get a new one until Tuesday. I just need a temporary fix until then. Please help.
You can start it up by getting a long screwdriver and touching the two things.... crap, I can't remember (I feel like an idiot for that statement). Regardless.... the steering wheel will still be locked in position without the key.

Once the cylinder is out, all you need is a screw driver, but getting the cylinder out requires the key and an operational cylinder. If its not working then your gonna have some fun with a drill and a lot of choice words. Much easier said than done.
