I am borrowing my brother's '01 Wrangler while he is off in the military. I started having the symptoms of the actuator pin failure and read up on these great forums and ordered the part from Autozone. I watched the Dorman video 3 times and the installation went smoothly until I tried to start the jeep after reassembly. The key will no longer turn in the ignition!
I had the key in the run position the entire time, and I turned it several times before I put the actuator pin assembly back on the end. Now I can't get the key to turn at all! Nor can I get the assembly back off the end!
Is there any way i can get this thing back apart? I have to get this thing running! I can NOT afford a dealership. $40 for the part was stretching it.
Please help. You guys are good, I am sure someone has had this issue before. Thanks much in advance.
