5 speed with a button

it might have a 3rd position, you sure it isnt turning the key towards you?

thats there "Accessory" is. if you put the key in, turn it once, thats run, then push it more thats start, you need to turn it back past wwhen you put it in originally to make it accessory

It's to prevent the steering wheel from locking up if someone like a small child were to attempt to pull the key out while the Jeep was being driven.

Or a stupid teenage friend (when you're going down a hill and around a bend). Guess my car at that time didn't have a little button

Doesn't the auto shifter prevent the key from being removed unless it's in Park?
