Why do you need to push a button to release a key from the ignition of a Jeep Wrangler?
I am very curious about what purpose this button lock serves? I cannot imagine ignition keys fall out by accident and clearly this is not an issue for most other cars.
If you have a manual transmission they have been like that for many years (all makes not just jeeps). I have never seen a setup like that in a vehicle with an automatic trans. I believe it is to ensure that you have the vehicle shutoff before you remove the keys.
