SOunds like you may be chasing down a bad wire between the column and starter. The only thing shaking the stick could do is possibly jiggle a wire. Our Jeeps are made to be able to start in gear. THere is a reason for it but I wont go into it here.

I don't know if this will help, but I have a 94 and there is a wire that goes from the throttle position sensor down to the motor. Mine got on the exhaust and fused the wires together. I fixed the wires and it stopped that problem.

Since nothing happens you can rulle out the pump wiring which is what grounds at the ebrake. It shares a ground with the fuel gauge so if thats working it should be good. Can you jump the starter relay with a screwdriver and get it to start. Lets start at the starter and work our way bacl logically. I know the big parts but if it gets detailed we will need idahoboy in here since Que is still on the injured list. Idahoboy can keep pace with Que though.

Crap I missed a post. Before jumping the starter you should consider replacing the pos and neg that fo from the battery to the starter relay. They can coorode inside the sheathing/insulation where you cant see and cause these issues.

That wouldnt keep the starter from spinning. It is on its own circut

one thing that was unrelated, but keeps crossing my mind because things are often related: a month or so ago while driving in the rain, my intermittent wiper switch stopped working, then started working backwards (the faster the setting the slower the arms moved). I havent had the problem since.
