97 owners please read!!!!!!
My 97 tj has a three position ignition switch (acc, off, and on), and a button you have to push to get the key out of the ignition, but my friends 97 only has 2 positions on his ignition switch(on and off) and no button you have to push to get the key out. What gives?

Stick vs. Auto tranny?

Manual transmissions have the button.

if that's the case, i voted for 3 position, and mine's manual...

Button and a 5 speed here...

ute 06-26-2006 08:45 AM

button 5 spd

even my 92 was the same

its a GM ignition on the 92 and i think the same for the 97

The button's a safety thing and auto's don't have any buttons.

My '97 is a manual 5 speed and has a button too

That explains the button, but why wouldn't they have an acc position?

I meant to vote for the three position, but I don't have a button.

Likewise, no key remove button

3 positions, button, 5 speed... and Canadian, if that makes any difference (the jeep, not me)

oh, and BTW- very sad to see a thread without a pic of Mrs. the "rat".;)

I have a '97 TJ with a 3 speed auto. No button and has three positions on the ignition. Key turned towards you = acc. position, middle = off position, and key turned away from you = on position.
