SOURCE: my ignition switch will not
This may help for the key situation.
Try tapping the key with a rubber mallet(right hand) while trying to turn the key(left hand). May need to tap a little harder than you think. Don't hit key at an angle... snap!! May have second person jiggle steering wheel at same time. If that works, call a locksmith, not your dealer. It'll save you 250. Then ask the locksmith to remove the first 3 wafers(tumblers) in the ignition lock cylinder.

I have had this same problem on 4 of my Jeeps. A locksmith provided me with two answers.
This key thing happens to me at least once a week.
It is a common problem with Jeeps. 1998 Wrangler, 2007 Cherokee and two 2000 Cherokees all had the issue.
1. Replace the tumbler assembly. $150. USD (Not!)
2. Place the key in the ignition, smartly impact the key on the **** end, end that is sticking out of the ignition. (Harder is not better) strike straight on as to not break the key off. 4 or 5 strikes should fix the problem every time.
FYI - flooding the switch with WD-40 will not fix the issue, it is a tumbler problem.
