could be your neutral safety switch, turn the key just part way on, then put your jeep in neutral and try starting it. I had this problem with my 1995 jeep cherokee.
turn the key
If the security system on a 1991 Jeep Cherokee will not allow the jeep to start and the key will not turn in the lock, disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Try the key in the lock with the battery disconnected. If it works the first time, reconnect the battery and the system should be reset. If the key does not work in the lock, reconnect the battery and reprogram the key fob.
You will have to drill the center out to get it to turn.

1. Remove the lower steering wheel shroud. For a 1998 Jeep Cherokee it is connected with three #2 Phillips screws underneath. 2. Put the key in the ignition, turn the ignition to ON. On the key cylender, in the middle bottom, is a rectangular button. Press it all the way in, with a small bladed standard screwdriver. 3. Pull the key cylender out. Reverse steps to reinstall.
stick the key in the passenger door and turn it make sure all the doors are closed
If the alarm is factory... Take the key and put it in the drivers door.. turn the key to lock position then to the unlock position. The alarm with reset
I'm not sure but try this, turn the key with one hand (gently) while with the other hand try (hard) to turn the steering wheel one way then the other.
