Diconnect battery and wait 30 minutes, then remove steering whell and then remove clip holding lock plate, remove plate and unscrew, usually three screws and remove the turn signal sir coil assembly, then you will see a bolt that is holding the lock cylinder in, it will have 2 wires attached to it and they must be disconnected at the base of the steering column and routed up through the column, then replace parts in reverse order, do not spin the sir coil or you will have to replaqce it

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle


sounds like the key is either worn down to where the ridges in the key wont push the tumblers inside the key lock cylinder into their proper place to move the cylinder into the starting position. Or your steering colum is locked and the wheel is moving freely as if it were not. So your solution would be to either have an expert look at it (estimated cost: 200$ low/400$high) or you can attempt to fix it yourself.
should you choose the "I'll fix it myself" method....try getting a new key made at a hardware store since keys wearout over time (ie:10years of turning that old key), this may solve the problem right away if the ridges are just worn on the key. Or the hard way, you need to get a phillips screwdriver and some jewelers tools and an 8mm or 10mm wrench/rachet+socket to disconnect the battery, then underneath the steering colum just under the ignition is a hole in the colum shroud/cover, from there you can disconnect the ignition key lock cylinder (the thing you put your key into). once you've removed the cylinder from the steering colum you should test your key again to see if you can turn the cylinder outside of the colum if you cannot then buy a new ignition key lock cylinder for about 15$-30$...problems solved.

I need to change the key switch on the steering colum and can,t get the old one out


You must remove the steering wheel and remove the signal switch to get access to the ignition lock retainer. This retainer can be a small bolt or a reccessed pin that has to be pushed to remove the lock. The key may have to be in place to help removal. If this is the case then the key should be in the" on" position.
PS The push pin may also be located at the base of the lock cylinder on the outside of the housing. Look around under the housing before getting into the steering wheel.
