Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
I had the same problem and tried to tap the area where the key goes into the steering column. Be very carefull not to apply too much impact. The plastic? silver piece that is outside the steering colum (and gives extra leverage to turn the key) can break off from the cylinder. The result is a hole in the steering column with just the base ignition key cylinder visible. If the jam is that piece of silver collar, it will free up the cylinder to turn, but you'll be turning the cylinder using just the key, so be carefull not to end up with a broken key inside the cylinder...

Try taking a small hammer and tap the lock cylinder then try to turn it on. the hammer may jar it enough
