If you can shut the engine off the shift linkage may not be aligned and that makes it not able to fully turn back if it is stuck completely on the switch is probably messed up and would need to be replaced either way you will need to take the column apart and it is easily done with a few tools that are not very expensive. if you need the name of the tools let me know and I can help you through the tear down and repair.

How do you un stick a stuck ignition switch on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

you can temporarliy "un-stick" the ignition by inserting the key as you would you start the vehicle. then tap the end of the key a few times with the palm of your hand almost as you are trying to drive it in further. this generaly works. but keep in mind that the only fix is to replace the ignition lock cylinder. and make sure that the key is not twisted or bent because that could also inhibit the key from turning properly
