Sounds like either a bad lock cylinder, broken linkage in the steering column, or bad ignition switch. I'm assuming that your battery is not dead? HTH. -Jim

a two year old jeep Cherokee with no warranty whats up with that? I would see about that first but if you got it used with no warranty then I would suspect ignition switch or wiring as there is no linkage in steering to break like older models that have switch in steering in the column not in dash. I hope this is a little helpful

Good catch on the warranty! Take it back to Chrysler and let them fix it for free! HTH. -Jim
