1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee shifter stuck in park

Could be the brake light switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park. Sometimes there is a button or tab near the shifter to unlock it in an emergency. Sometimes you can take it out of park if you turn the key but not to the on position.
Your owners manual should have these procedures, and you can do an internet search for the process to take the console out if needed.

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that

With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start when in park but starts fine when in neutral. What do you suggest?

It sounds like your shifter cable may be out of adjustment, this is more common in chryslers, you may need to adjust the shifter to get it to start. also the neutral safety switch may be faulty. but when those go bad the car may not start at all.

Change shifter adjusted shift cable to park position change neutral safety swicht and jeep won't start has power

try jumping the starter in neutral or park with the key in the on position. if it doesnt work replace the starter. also check your ground cable going from the battery to the engine block, if it's loose or frayed replace it

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park

the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
