Is it a door cylinder or the ignition. a door lock will have a clip, the tailgate will have one accessible from the inside of the tailgate, the doors will have a clip that goes through the side of the door near the latch. In the case of the ignition cylinder the trim surrounding the steering column and some of the dash trim will have to be removed, but I am not sure how the cylinder is actually held on to the switch.

No you can't program the key's yourself ! You could call a mobile lock smith that has the tool to program the keys .

Having the key, like you said is the easiest way. I would call the dealership and give them the VIN#. With this number, they should be able to supply you with another key

Will a bad key ignition switch effect the inderctor light on the dishboard

New keys with cylinder may not have a transponder chip , or new keys will need to be programmed. you will require two keys equipped with proper transponder for your vehicle, and either new keys cloned with the old transponders. If you have lost the original keys , you will need someone to remove the original keys from the pcm , than marry the 2 new keys to the pcm. If you have an original key , try placing it by the lock cylinder when attempting to start with the key supplied with the new ignition cylinder.

Lost 2003 Chrysler town and country keys.

Since it worked fine with the old key, you might consider taking your van to a "good" automotive locksmith. Also ask the dealer to check for any TSBs [Technical Service Bulletins] relating to software updates for your van's computer. These updates are often released by the manufacturer to cure the sort of issues the dealer is having. FYI, have at LEAST two keys made, so you don't end up in this position again.

I lost my keys and there are two different keys to operate my jeep. One opens the door, and the other ones starts the car. Can I get a new set?

Sounds like somewhere along the life of your jeep someone changed the ignition cylinder, resulting in your having two separate keys. You will have to replace the ignition cylinder and all or maybe just the one driver's side door lock cylinder. There's really no way one key will work with both your existing ignition and door locks. Another suggestion is that you can get a complete matching set of locks and keys from someone who's parting out their Grand Cherokee, so you would then have only one key for all the locks.

Key switch replacement

Go the the library and read the Chilton;s manual for replacing the ignition Key Lock Cylinder. It will show you what special tools that are needed with pictures as well
It is a long process to change and can not take the time to write 4 pages of instructions to you
copies of the pages from the book can be made there as well

Lost keys and need to replace them. I need to

whether there's a chip( you mean an integrated electronic?) stuck inside the key drum, you will still need to change them all if you lost your key.
most difficukt part is accessing the ignition drum; taking it out is easy when you get there. you will also need to change the door and trunk keys as well.
You will definitely need some elbow grease if you intend to do it yourself( it is not impossible, but it is complicated accessing the locks- removing panels etc; especially in a luxury car)

No key for 2001 ford expedition

you can't start the vehicle without taking it in and having a new key programmed to it- you can have a key made- it will unlock it and turn in the ign. but will not start without programming- your ford dealer may be able to get the key code for the vehicle but most likely you'll also have to purchase a new ign. cylinder and have 2 keys made because it takes 2 keys to program after an erase. hope this helps, good luck

Lost keys

Why are you taking out the old one. Check with any good locksmith. If your door key fits the ignition, you can easily remove a door lock cylinder and the locksmith can make you a new key!!! I'm pretty sure to remove your lock you need to turn it with the key in it (but you don't have one)
