Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. It is either attached to the key cylinder or down towards the bottom of the column, under the dash. It may just be loose, or needs adjusting.

How to replace the ignition in a 1988 Jeep

First thing you need to do is determine if the problem is in the key lock or the switch. Switch is located above the steering column connected to the lock by a rod. Instructions for adjustment/install are usually in the box with the new switch. If key lock is bad, you need to disassemble the upper column under the steering wheel...Instructions can be found in either chiltons or haynes. (book is useful for many other things and a worthwhile investment at around $20.)

Wiring Assembly for Wiper Blades

This happened to mine. There is a black box under your dash that controls your wipers have you replaced that first? I tore down my steering column replaced the wiring swirch andall it was is that black box under my dash... If it is the wiring switsh you have to get a sterring wheel puller it makes it easy. Take it all apart you will see the wirer running from the wiper switch down to the dash unplug them on both sides and pull it thru your steering column. get a new one or go to junk yard much cheaper than 80 dollars at advance auto. And put it back together the way you took it apart. There are lots of screws so dont loose them.. Hopeful this will help you but like i said check that black box under your dash first it is a easy fix if thats your problem.
