2010 Jeep Cherokee won’t shut off when key is out

2010 jeep Cherokee wont shut off when key is out.

If you cannot get it to shut off, pull the negative battery cable.

You likely have a faulty ignition switch.

I’d pull the Ignition or fuel pump fuse first, let the engine die then take the negative cable off. if it’s a bad ignition switch the engine just might continue to run. An I don’t know how tolerant Jeeps are to running without the battery connected.
