Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
You mean ignition switch there are lots of ignition parts.
did someone else take this apart?
you are where? under hood , or inside steering column parts
i hope the air bags are defeated, as not doing so , has killed or broken many a neck.
why not red the real FSM , follow the steps????
answering for Key switch R&R (or is this cylinder removal?)
96 Jeep ZJ
see chapter, igniition opt 1. 8D-21 to page 24
PDF page 21 , its all there, every word.
most steering locks/ key switches assembles have anti tamper bolts. did you know that? and buy new ones. or use standard screws/bolts?
read that and the ask questions when the book is not clear.

remove the door switch, clean and reinsert. It switched ground to a black cable, which goes to the PCM.

this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.

have the crank sensor replaced this controls the spark and injector pulse it is located on the drivers back side of the engine above the transmission housing!

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.
