Try to stir the wheel gently to left or right and at the same time gently turn the ignition key clockwise. Most probably it will turn
Is it automatick. If yes please make sure that gear is in PARK position. Sometimes it can be reason too.
You just lock the stiring wheel. And let me know in few hours if it is working for you.
Good Luck

Did you try turning steering wheel hard one way or the other? If your parked with wheels cranked, get someone to try rocking vehicle back & forth a bit while you try to turn wheel in same direction they are cranked real hard, then try to cycle key.

Steering wheel locked and key will not turn 2000 jeep grand cherokee


First thing you need to try is wiggling the steering wheel back and worth while turning the key to try and unlock the steering column. If the key is worn out it may not turn well in the ignition. Another thing is to lubricate the ignition cylinder. If nothing works, it maybe the ignition cylinder tumbler is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Good Morning, I used my 1996 jeep grand cheroke to go to the store. One hour later it just didn't want to start. I will not turn over. Battery is fine. Power to everything is fine.Outdoor temperature is...


contrary to what people think, the ignition key cylinder is not the ignition switch (switch itself is on top of steering column, connected to key tumbler by a metal rod.) If the switch has failed, it may feel strange when you turn the key. Any competent repair shop will do testing to both the switch, and the components it operates to find the problem. Obviously, the price will cover time testing , r&r of parts and the price of the parts themselves. Beware of shops that want to change everything, including the seats in order to make the repair.If you have a question about how valid the diagnosis is, ask it here!

Key not turning


Worn tumbler. Firmly tap the end of the key with a hammer while you turn it. Don't smack your finger. Once the key turns drive directly to a lock smith and get your tumbler rebuilt.

Worked for me 12 miles out a dirt road in Baja.
