I think you may have a worn out ignition switch! The on position might be bad and all the works is the start position.

You can check to see if the engine is getting power with the key in the on position. If it isn't, you need a new one!

The alternator or coil positive contacts are good places to check for juice! You can use a test light and watch the light go on and off.

Good luck and be careful!

Runs while key is being held on. as soon as you release key to driving derections. jeep stop runing. can any one help me.


I don't quite understand what you mean by be held on. Normally you "hold on" to the key to start it and let it go back to the on position. If you have to hold the key on (start position) then you can might not be starting. The starter is turning the engine, but the engine not running? What happens when you give it gas?

My jeep was idling pretty high and would come down go back up and cut off. I started it let it run for a little while went inside and it shut off. I got in drove it a bit if im going like 40 to 45 miles im...


Could be idle air sensor or throttle position sensor but first run the code check. On Jeeps you turn the key on and then off (without starting it) three times and leave in the on position on the fourth time. Code will appear on the monitor in front of the console. Write down the codes, the first one will be 12 if the battery has been unhooked before and the last one will be 55.

Try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. Usually that will re-set the security system. Also try the rear hatch lock as sometimes that is used instead of driver door.

1990 jeep cherokee starts but when you let off the key it dies already replaced thi ign switch


the fuel pump runs on 2 diffierint circuts. one when the key is engaging the starter motor when you are starting the engine, and the other is to power the fuel pump after you release the key when the engine is running. there is a resistor on the drivers side on top of the inner fender that you can over ride with a jumper wire to check. if it needs to be replace its about $5.00. (its a ceramic thing about 2 inches long and bout 3/4 inches square.

As soon as I turn the key to the on position, the engine turns over


The problem is either in the mechanism that pushes the rod that activates the ignition switch from the key lock cylinder, or the ignition switch is defective.
