I have a 1996 xj 4.0 5 speed manual 4 door. I bought it with a steering column where I have to switch on the key 3 times before it starts on the 4th. Idk idc at the moment. Since the 96 is the first year of the airbag but everything else is still the "old style" I was wondering if I could get a steering column from a 95 or down and install it into my XJ. Thank you

That is a good question. The starter switch is the same for both. However by not having the airbag there, you will get a check engine light because it cannot sense that bag there

My 96 has a self contained airbag. I don't think is wired into anything. Guys have reported them going off from being dropped.
