Sometimes the ignition lock cylinder and the parts that it operates may become jammed. The only remedy I can recommend short of disassembling the steering column is to try working the key in and out, back and forth, while working the steering wheel from side to side at the same time in order to dislodge any binding parts from operating.

Key stuck in the ingition , will only turn back as far as ACC. had to stall the car to shut it off and then disconnect the battery to keep it from draining how can i get the key out ?

I had a similar problem--I'd try to turn off the car & pull out the key & it would get stuck, like it was locked in. The problem that caused this for me was that I had not put the car fully in park--I had to shift out of park & re-shift to get it to stay in park. Once it was fully in park, the key would unlock. Hope this helps!

Seatbelt on my Jeep wranger 2003 will not pull over, when I pull it it sounds like something locks or is stopping it

Remove the cover and check to see that nothing has fallen in there...Ive removed everything from hair clips, quarters, and small toys from belt mechanisms. But I can't remember the last one that was actually broken!!!
Hope this helps!

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.
