SOURCE: 1998 Wranger Ignition Key Stuck / Steering Column Locked

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: 1988 Wrangler Ignition Switch Removal

There are four (sometimes two) bolts that hold the steering column to the dash. remove them & column will come down to let you get in there.
follow instruction sheet with switch. if you don't get it centered correctly it wont work correctly.

SOURCE: 97 jeep wrangler suddenly won't start or even crank at all

Get yourself a decent voltmeter and start checking everything from the battery down. Make sure your ground and positive cables are clean and well connected to both block and battery (clean inside where they touch, as well as clean on the outside. Your ignition switch should be on top of column, under the dash. I think your'e trying to remove key switch, which will not get you anywhere.Sitting for long periods promotes corrosion, I would look for loss of electrical contact before looking for failed components.

2004 jeep liberty won't turn over nor crank

The anti-theft system won't allow it to start . You replaced parts without knowing what would happen . The key has a transponder is the head of the key . The module that controls anti-theft doesn't see the transponder code an locked up the vehicle . Your best bet ,have it towed to a qualified repair shop . You don't have the tools or knowledge to fix it .

How to replace the ignition in a 1988 Jeep

First thing you need to do is determine if the problem is in the key lock or the switch. Switch is located above the steering column connected to the lock by a rod. Instructions for adjustment/install are usually in the box with the new switch. If key lock is bad, you need to disassemble the upper column under the steering wheel...Instructions can be found in either chiltons or haynes. (book is useful for many other things and a worthwhile investment at around $20.)

Jeep liberty 2002.....ignition key lock

Most commonly it is the key is worn out. If you have a spare key or your current one is not too badly worn, have a copy of it made and try it in the switch. You will have to have the copy key "coded" so it will disable the anti-theft system in order for the engine to start. If the new key doesn't fix your problem, you will have to replace the tumbler assembly.

Ignition turns but no start

it is an issue in the steering column. I am getting my 2005 back today, finally. 2 mechanics and they said they have never seen this issue before!!
The steering wheel has to be pulled off and the part replaced. It is cutting all power to the ignition switch. It is not the starter or the Alternator... it is in the steering column. It should be about 200.00 to fix.
