Ha ha.You ready for this?This is assuming you have the entire lock out
1.Insert the key and turn to lock pos.
2.Using a Torx bit,remove the cyl.retaining screw and bracket.
3.Turn the key clockwise to off.The cyl. will unseat itself about 1/8 inch.DON'T TRY AND REMOVE YET or damage to the halo ring.
4.With the cyl. unseated,turn key couterclockwise to lock pos. and then remove key.
5.Cyl. should come out.
Did you get all that? :)

SOURCE: how to replace an ignition cylinder lock

Hi,

1) Disconnect and isolate Negative (Ground) battery terminal
2) Wait full 2mins for Airbag system capacitors to discharge (must disable airbag before working near steering column)
3) Insert key and turn to ON position (not start)
4) Release & remove cylinder barrel by pressing the release with a suitable tool (access through hole in the lower shroud)
5) Withdraw cylinder barrel from shroud and disconnect wiring loom from cylinder.

Installation of new barrel is the reverse of above.

NB: YOU MUST ALWAYS DISABLE THE AIRBAG FIRST !

Hope this helps...

Cheers,

WHEN YOU INSTALL NEW LOCK CYLINDER, TURN THE KEY TO THE LOCK POSITION. INSERT THE LOCK CYLINDER INTO THE HOUSING FAR ENOUGH TO CONTACT THE DRIVE SHAFT FORCE IT INWARD AND MOVE THE IGNITION SWITCH ACTUATOR ROD UP AND DOWN TO ALIGN THE COMPONENTS.

Steering wheel locked and key will not turn 2000 jeep grand cherokee


First thing you need to try is wiggling the steering wheel back and worth while turning the key to try and unlock the steering column. If the key is worn out it may not turn well in the ignition. Another thing is to lubricate the ignition cylinder. If nothing works, it maybe the ignition cylinder tumbler is worn out and needs to be replaced.

I lost my keys and there are two different keys to operate my jeep. One opens the door, and the other ones starts the car. Can I get a new set?


Sounds like somewhere along the life of your jeep someone changed the ignition cylinder, resulting in your having two separate keys. You will have to replace the ignition cylinder and all or maybe just the one driver's side door lock cylinder. There's really no way one key will work with both your existing ignition and door locks. Another suggestion is that you can get a complete matching set of locks and keys from someone who's parting out their Grand Cherokee, so you would then have only one key for all the locks.

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.

Check the starter, selinoid, and then the ignition switch if the motor will not turn over. If it turns over without fire check the ignition coil and then the distributor.
