I have 1994 jeep Cherokee 4WD 6 cylinder, it won't


The steering wheel stays on. Dismantle the steering column shroud. Use a Torx 15 screwdriver and undo the three screws from the bottom of the shroud. It should come apart in two pieces, top and bottom. You now can access the ignition switch on the right side of the steering column where you insert the 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.

Tried to start vehicle but key won't turn in ignition.any solutions


Hi
The steering wheel doesn't need to be straight ahead but if it was parked with the steering wheel turned and there was a binding up of the wheels it may take turning the steering wheel a little to the left or right to release the steering wheel lock, this is especially true if it is parked up or downhill with the wheels turned.
If the wheel won't unlock there is no other choice other than to call the dealer and have it towed there to have it fixed under the warranty.
However there are two other things you can do by your own before goin to the repair shop...
1) Buy some graphite at the Hardware store and put it in the key hole. This works for a while but needs to be repeated and can be a bit messy.
2) Put the key in the ignition slowly and gently, gently try turning the key as you are putting the key further in. Eventually, you will reach the point where the key turns and you should be able to start the vehicle.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

The key will turn far enough to start the accessories but will not move far enough to turn the engine on.


try turning steering wheel a bit, or move shifter up past park. Otherwise ignition may have a broken or stuck pin and will need to be replaced.

Key wont turn - to turn the car on...


The key needs to be replaced. Sometimes, not all, for some reason the key is not detected and your vehicle will not start. If you have a spare try it, if not you will need to go to dealership.
