Let see some close up pictures of the edges of those seals. Are they metal or plastic inside?

I have a set from TGC, brand new, never used, if you are willing to seal the edges with black RTV. For sale in classifieds.

Clock spring for the horn, maybe, but it's not what locks the steering wheel. It's only function is to keep the connection while the steering wheel turns. The locking mechanism is in the steering column. The ignition cylinder only pushes down a rod that pushes on an ignition switch, down lower into the steering wheel column. If you take the covers off, you will see how it works.

Update, found some time to pull Steering colum covers and have a look at it today,

Horn issue was blown fuse, good thing it wasnt the clockspring, replaced fuse and got horn back again

Then the Steering wheel lock all of a sudden worked again, tried it several times and got everything back together again.

WTF, still Steering wheel lock not working after i put covers back on!!!???

I will need to pull it apart again another day when i have more time, until then i need to figure out,

What is controling the Steering wheel actuator?
Ignition switch, mechanicly or electric?

What is the part number for the Steering lock actuator thingy?

Strange. AFAIK, it is mechanical, without getting out the FSM. It sounds like something is either broken or bent. My bet is on broken, as bent would cause a bind.

Imediatly threw check engine light,
Got lucky to find a overpriced at shelf at stealership, bought it and replaced it.


Attachment 875954



Also replaced licence plate bulbs with LED

Ok now check engine was gone but still idle high,
Started to investigate vacum leaks, have a air sucking/blowing sound coming from the rear of TB intake area, found That it raised the idle rpm when i sprayed start gas in That area,

Replaced brake booster vacum hose and some others That looked alittle cracked at the ends, no dice


Attachment 875978


The vacum line going behind engine towards torpedo wall from one top to the another and have a t piece going to the resonator box was cracked at the ends going to the engine,


Attachment 875970



Attachment 875978



Attachment 875994



Attachment 876002



tried to tape them up with electro tape, but still no dice
Its still raises the idle rpm when i spray start gas in the rear top end of the intake, behind TB,,, aaaaahhh!!!!

How sensitive is this vacum system???

This now starts to irritate the H out of me, cause idle at ~1000ish rpm, makes it shift hard from P>N>D, and fuel consumption is out of wack.

And where the heck Are this ground strap going???


Attachment 876010



Attachment 876018



comes one from right side engine compartment torpedo wall>engine>this one, i cant see to figure out where its going,,,

Any or all ideas apriciated, i really need this fixed, its my DD,,,
Did you ever identify where to get replacements for those hose elbows? Mine are cracked and the Jeep is throwing vacuum leak (Large and Small) codes.

I'd love to fix them in the hopes of better MPG and idle.

I am pretty sure the steering wheel lock is a mechanical mechanism, at least the limited times I've dealt with it.

I have 5000k 55w HID's, they are white to me and I've been happy with them. 6000k was *almost* too ice blue to me. But this is just my observation.

No, they Are a complete hose/bend part, got mine from Kolak, wasnt much really, sure cured idle and mpg issues.

Yep!

One of my favorite things is to blast out of my driveway and then drive down the unplowed street while my trapped neighbors watch helplessly from their front windows.

Gotta love a JEEP!

Got my Lazy @$$ up and around to do some small stuff today,,,,

Replaced broken low beam bulb to prevent ti be pulled over by the donut pigs.

Pulled Steering wheel colum covers again, i didnt disassemlied the ignition/Steering wheel lock, there Are security torx like screws with a tap in the middle to make theft more complicated.
So i will need to figure out a bit That fits this screw before i can pull the ignition/Steering wheel lock mechanism and see what happens or not.

I got MY lazy arse up and got out my FSM and looked up the steering mechanism. It doesn't really go into detail, but I think your problem is with the lock cylinder housing and the shift interlock cable.

EDIT-or it could be the ignition switch lock tab. (See 2nd picture). The FSM mostly goes into the shift-interlock and doesn't say anything (that I could find) about the steering wheel locking or what locks it, and I am not sure what else it might be called.
