Jeep liberty 2002.....ignition key lock


Most commonly it is the key is worn out. If you have a spare key or your current one is not too badly worn, have a copy of it made and try it in the switch. You will have to have the copy key "coded" so it will disable the anti-theft system in order for the engine to start. If the new key doesn't fix your problem, you will have to replace the tumbler assembly.

Starting Problems


there is a rod that goes from your ignition switch down to a box in the steering colum. and when you turn the key it pushes the rod wich inturn conects the electrical circut and tells the starter to engage. you can fix this by takeing the compleat colum out of the car and rebuilding it but if you can finda colum in a junk yard it would be alot easier and faster to replace the whole colum n if you do finda a colum in a junk yard make sure they have the key for the ignition before you buy it from them

There should be a pin hole under the lock or on side of where the key goes . push a sewing pin in it and the key has to be in the ignition and released to pull lock out with the key in . Try that
