Had the same problem with a 99 dodge van. tow truck driver put the key into the ignition and tapped it a couple of times while turning the key to freed it up and start the engine. works as long as you leave the key in the ignition so i use a second key to lock/unlock the van. hope this works for you. gary

Easiest way to handle this problem is as you turn the key turn the steering wheel back and forth not real hard bust firm and try and turn the key foward and back at the same time. usually what happens is the little detente inside the column gets stuck just right and stops the tumbler from moving

      Unlock all of the Jeepicon1.png Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.

    • 2

      Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.

    • 3

      Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the caricon1.png ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.

    • 4

      When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.

    • 5

      Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!

Ignition switch for 2000 jeep grand cherokee is stuck


I'm going to answer this question since I don't know how the security system would affect the lock.
If you can get the key out of the lock, you may want to spray some WD40 or other lube in the slot where the key goes.
If that does not help, you should be able to drop the cover from under the steering wheel and disconnect the switch from the lock cylinder.
If the lock is still stuck, it may have damaged tumblers or something may be jammed with the shifter and steering wheel lock.

Ignition on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee is locked, how do I unlock the ignition? Keys goes in ignition, door chim works when key is in ignition. But the key won't turn it's stuck.


tap the ignition lock cylinder with the plastic end of a scrwedriver (with the key removed). then insert the key and try to start. Try this several times. If you get it to turn immediately replace the igntion lock cylinder. The cylinder needs to be in the on position in order for the lock button to be depressed so that the cylinder can be removed from the housing.

If you still can't get it to turn than you will have to drill out the lock button in order to get the old lock cylinder out. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have some experience and understand what you are doing.

The lock button can be accessed by removing the lower steering column cover.

You are probably unaware that your jeep has an aftermarket keyless entry system....Try this....roll down the drivers window....push the power door lock......get out/close the door...and attempt to open the door as u normally would.......it should be locked...... use your key to unlock the door....get in.....insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on...((((DON"T TRY 2 START IT UN TILL THE WARNING BELL STOPS DINGING & ALL THE DASH WARNING LIGHTS ARE OUT)))...........usually 5 dinging sounds.......at any rate just wait untill the sounds stops and fire up your jeep.....i hope this works for ya.....good luck

Automatic door locks wont work on my 2004 jeep grand cherokee


There is a broken wire in the rubber casing between the door and the vehicle. Take the rubber casing off and you will more than likely find a broken wire or one about to break. Been there and done that.

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee. my only problem is that theres a continuous beep that will not go off...it starts out like the "ding ding ding" you hear when the key is in the ignition and the drivers...


Find out where the noise is coming from. From your description, it sounds like the key warning buzzer is being activated when it should not be. A quick fix for this is to disconnect the buzzer. (the switch that turns it on is in the steering column and a real pain to get to) After you disconnect it, Make sure everything you need is still working.. I don't think it's connected to anything else important.

I had a similar problem with my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It turned out that the battery posts and cables were corroded. I cleaned them up and it solved the problem immediately. Something to check on before you spend the money on a new battery anyway!
