Ingition won't stay in position II very well

1994 RRC, key goes into ignition and turns fine, but doesn't stay in the position II very well. So when you start it, it wants to turn back off into the first position and therefore turns off. You have to start it and sort of hold it for a second to get it to stay. Anyone ever had this issue?

Does the '94 RRC use the same ignition switch #PRC8230 that the Defender does? If so...that's your ticking time bomb. I give it ~24 hours until total failure. Maybe less (my last one from symptom to failure was maybe 3 hours).

Then I was forced to do this:

And have tidied up the wiring and connectors, and been on a push-button start ever since....

I had the same issue in my 1994 DEF 90. I replaced the entire ignition lock and solved the problem. My guess is over the years it wears down and won't stay in II/lock.

OEM part# for the 94 ignition switch is NTC9588. I'd just like to get it to a point where it stays in posII, don't really care if it's with a key or not as I never leave it parked somewhere that it might get stolen. They don't make the part anymore, no where to find it except for someone parting one out, and chances are I'll have the same problem with an old used one.


I like the push button idea...PM me with what you bought if you can

From what I see, you actually want STC932, which is the actual switch and what should contain the detent springs to hold the key in each position.
