Jeep won't shutoff

I can crank it just fine, but when I turn the key off it still runs even if I pull the key all the way out. I got a good idea of what it might be, but I would like some input before I start spending money.

Yeah I have noticed that I have to turn the key back just a little because it wont turn back on its own after I turn it to start it.

Any Ideas if that dont work.

The only way to kill the motor is to disconnect the battery.

What if I just put in a 3 way toggle switch- 1 off 2 run condition 3 start condition springs back to 2 position.
And a seperate 2 way kill switch hidden.
How hard would that be? Would anyone do it to there rig.

To do the three way switch should be easy. As long as you get a switch that holds the proper amperage and such. I think 40 does it, since 40 is the fuse size for my starter.

I have a kill switch for my ignition wire from the steering column to the starter motor. It's incredibly easy to wire.

Maybe it was converted to diesal overnight?

But i think it would be easier to just go with a kill switch. So you can just remove the key and hit the switch and its off.

I would check the ignition switch on top of the column behind the dash, I think it's about $15.

Should probably try a fuel pump kill switch.

I would put a kill switch on my fuel pump, but I would still have a drain on my battery. The ebrake light stays on when they key is in the off position and after I pop the clutch to kill the motor. So somewhere when I turn the key off it is not sending a killing the power.
