  1. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 1988 YJ and had an ignition cylinder that didn't need a key to start. Last week, the key cylinder turned with no resistance and of course, would not start. I figured it was the cylinder so I bought a new key cylinder and replaced it. Still doesn't start or have any resistance when...
  2. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Quite a few posts on various aspects of this problem that were all rather old, so I thought I would start fresh. My '93 XJ ignition is locked up. Key will not turn. Let's go over what I have dismantled so far: 1. Removed the key cylinder (to install a new one - quick fix #1 and usually the...

    So, I have a 1986 floor shift, non tilt steering column, which should be pretty common, right? Well, I guess it isn’t because the one plastic piece that I need to replace seems to be made out of unobtanium. It’s the middle of the 3 shroud pieces on the column, and I’ve attached a picture of my...

    Hey everyone, recently I've been looking at putting in a wooden steering wheel. I looked around on the forums for the ability to attach an aftermarket steering wheel to the stock column, but I can't seem to find anything. We have a non-tilt, manual transmission column if that helps. If anyone...

    I decided to put something out for people that had the same trouble finding information on a steering column for 76 cj7. While Jeeps can have most anything I believe mine is original and I could not find information on it. The closest was a 1980-86 column with automatic transmission but was...

    Any body else having this issue?? The little gear that drives the rack/push rod to the start switch keeps jumping a tooth on me. First time I replaced the rack and gear as both were worn. But it has happened a few more times and its getting old. Is groove where this runs just worn out to far...

    I swapped out a steering column on my 79 CJ7. The original one was not a tilt. The new is a tilt. I found a stainless steel steering column cover that bolted nicely to the dash but now there is a gap where the column meets the dash. If I could find a black rubber boot that was 4" id it would...

    So here's the thing. My first problem is my jeep is an auto. Now that we have that out of the way, I have lost a bolt that goes to the linkage rod for my steering column shifter. Any idea where I can find this bolt without purchasing an entire linkage kit? Help!!

    Happy Sunday all, I just ordered a new Grant steering column and before I put it on, I wanted to address 2 issues with instruments on my steering column. Problem is that I've read through both the Haynes and Chilton manuals, and can't find mention of these actual parts/issues. Couldn't find...

  12. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hello All, My 1998 XJ 4.0L is having blinker issues. For a couple of years, the blinker lever would get hitched, or stuck, and it would have to be jiggled to get into the on position. But after a couple of years, the lever broke or something so the mechanism that springs back the lever after...
  13. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    For a few weeks, I noticed that I was having to turn the key a little farther than normal each time I started my 87 XJ. Then when I turned it off, it started getting caught just before being put in the OFF position. It would be hard to turn and make a lock click when it did turn. Finally, no...

    I took the column out and replaced the rack and sector. While out, I greased the upper bearing and painted the column. I reassembled using the old fasteners and used a torque wrench. The steering shaft is binding somewhere. It feels like the power steering pump has gone out but the pump and box...

    Trying to remove the steering column to rebuild it, but that will be another question at another time. However, I've taken out every bolt imaginable, but can seem to separate this knuckle from the shaft. I've looked everywhere, but I can't find any info on how to remove it. Any help is...

    :confused:so driving home In my 95 xj I noticed slight wisps of smoke coming from my steering column. It did not smell or feel hot. The smoke did not last long and was very faint.

    Hello everyone, I recently got back home from over seas from working on Blackhawks in the NG. I have a 84 cj7 that I'm trying to get up and running. The only thing holding me back now is broken lock cylinder on the steering column. It's not the lock cylinder it's self, it's what ever holds it...
