The problem is in the ignition cylinder itself. This is a common problem with Chrysler/Jeep products. The lock cylinder has become gunked up over the years, and the lock pins are stuck and not coming down to meet the key's surface properly. Here's what you need to do: Put the key in, and then tap it lightly with a hammer or the handle end of a screwdriver while wiggling it. You'll find it will then turn. The real fix is to replace the lock cylinder at the dealers but this is probably several hundred dollars. For the past two years, I've just whacked mine each time with the butt end of my Mag-lite flashlight. As it got worse, I now just leave a single key in the ignition, and have a second key and a "Club" to lock the steering wheel and the doors (as long as the key is left in the ignition, it'll turn fine).
Please rewrite your query using better grammar and I'll try to help you. (I can't understand what you wrote).
