either you have the wrong key,or try turning the steering wheel to the right all the way,then turn key,this usually happens when you park the vehicle and the wheels are turned,then the steering wheel locks hard

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.

SOURCE: trouble starting
I tried the following and it works for me like a charm I push the key gadget in halfway, wait for the first light on left to go out and then push it in slightly further until all lights and bells are silent and then I push it in the whole way and it starts right up. I am not getting VW to replace this to the tune of $1800.....this fix works just fine!

Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).
Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.
