1997 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic
I'm having an issue with my Jeep's ignition switch not wanting to function. When I pull the harness off of the switch, I can manually start it via jumper wires on the plug, but it will not start when I put the plug on the switch and turn the key. I know the key is turning the switch, as I can hear a relay clicking on the firewall underneath the glove compartment. But none of the electrical components will function via the switch. I have no instrument panel lights, radio, et cetera when I plug in the switch and turn the key, but they will come on if I manually jump them at the plug.
Is there a relay or other component that prevents the ignition switch from coming on?
