Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I figured out that if you shift into park and then with your thumb NOT pressing in the little side shifter button , pull the shifter back quickly (toward Neutral ) and back into park without depressing the button....you should hear it "click" into Park. That's it turn the car off and pull out the key.Works every single time for me.I read in the owners manual that the car isn't shifted ALL the way into park and that's why the key gets stuck.

Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

SOURCE: tailgate lock won' release
There is a small plate on the tailgate door about center and a little to the right about2x3 inches. remove it and with your finger reach in through the insulation and you will feel a lever. that is the manual release. if it will not move the control motor is broken in the locked position. To change that you need to remove the panel on the door and the insulation mat covering it. It will cost about 90.00 bucks from jeep

Roll the key back to the lock position and push the roll pin in. When you go back together, rolling the key forward pushes the roll pin back out to lock it in place.

Sounds like you allready have it apart , and know what you are doing so i hate to mention that it could be the steering lock.

Parking Brake Console Light Stays On
The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.
The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.

do you carry a lot of trinkets to weight it down enough to cause it to retract into the off position otherwise i am thinking the ignition needs replacement due to wear and everyday use parts do wear out
