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?


97 TJ. Full width D60 w/Detroit, Alloys and 5.89 gears. Full width D44 spooled, 60 outers, Warn lockouts. 6" Rock Krawler Gen II LA. 11 gallon cell behind the rear seat. 37" Maxxis Trepador competitions on 17" Stazworks double internals, blazay, blazay.....

Stick vs. Auto tranny?

Manual transmissions have the button.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.

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".
