Steering wheel lock

On our 2002 Jeep Grand, we could easily remove the pin that locks the steering wheel when ignition key is removed. This disabled the steering wheel lock.

Does the 2011 Grand have the same 'anti-theft' feature?
Has anyone found a way to disable the steering wheel lock, so steering wheel can rotate without ignition key?

We will tow a new 2011 Grand behind our motorhome and after removing the steering wheel lock on our 2002 Grand, we no longer had to have the ignition partly on, to allow the steering wheel to track behing motorhome. No ignition key had to be in Jeep during towing.

Re: Steering wheel lock

I have a question. Will towing a Jeep or any car behind a motorhome put mileage on it when it's off?

Disabling Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004 Wheel Lock on ACC

Hi,

I installed a push-button/remote start on my 2004 Grand (by an installer!), and the unit requires a cut key in ACC position. Unfortunately the JEEP locks the wheel in ACC, so I am looking for a way to disable the Wheel Lock. Can you guide me how to remove the pin so the wheel does not lock anymore?

Thank you...
