Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
If you are having trouble with the brake lights and radio, the problem is not under the steering wheel but at the base of the column. There is an ignition switch that runs just about everything. The key switch runs a rod down to this switch. I removed the bottom panel of the dash and loosened the column. It drops down where you can get access to the switch. You just have to be careful and put the new switch in the same position as the old one, it needs to be coordinated with the key position, so start is start and run is run. If it "is" the turn signal switch you want to replace, you will need a steering wheel puller to pull it off. There is a locking spring washer that sits in a groove that you have to pull off first. It is pretty hard to get this washer back in position because you have to compress a tension spring that works the horn, so make sure you really need to take it off.
