Ignition Lock Cylinder 2000 Jeep Cherokee

I have tried all the tricks on the internet and still can’t get the key unlocked, so I am ready to just replace the part. Is this something my son can do or is it very complicated?

In order to remove the lock cylinder, the key must be turned to the run position and then a pin is depressed at the bottom of the lock cylinder.

So if you can’t get the key to unlock, how are you going to turn it to the run position?

And does the vehicle have an anti-theft system?
