[SOLVED] Ignition switch or other?
My '99 TJ won't start anymore. If I turn the key the solonoid doesn't click and there is no power to the dash. I can, however, arc the starter with a long metal screw driver (dangerous I know) and I'm off and running.
This happened to me at lunch on a work day so I thought I'd take it to the closest dealer (foolish me). They told me it wasn't the solonoid or the ignition switch, but another switch in the stearing column. Further, they said it couldn't be replaced but rather I'd have to order a whole new column for $800!
This sounded fishy to me so I parked it at home and there it's stayed for a couple months (a crime I know). Now I've got the time to tinker with it. I think it is the ignition swtich, which I'm sure I can replace myself. Before I started tearing things apart though, I wanted to here some opinions.
