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.

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

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.

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.
