Question about 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The steering wheel doesn't need to be straight ahead but if it was parked with the steering wheel turned and there was a binding up of the wheels it may take turning the steering wheel a little to the left or right to release the steering wheel lock, this is especially true if it is parked up or downhill with the wheels turned.
If the wheel won't unlock there is no other choice other than to call the dealer and have it towed there to have it fixed under the warranty.
However there are two other things you can do by your own before goin to the repair shop...
1) Buy some graphite at the Hardware store and put it in the key hole. This works for a while but needs to be repeated and can be a bit messy.
2) Put the key in the ignition slowly and gently, gently try turning the key as you are putting the key further in. Eventually, you will reach the point where the key turns and you should be able to start the vehicle.
Hope this helps.
