Unless it is jammed in you might be able to get it out with a magnet if not your going to have to pull the switch and open it up to get it out or use a small wire to get it out.

Ive got a 01 jeep grand Cherokee limited v8 someone stuck a bobby pin in the ignition,finally got it out car starts but dies immediately


It would seem that someone tried to steal your vehicle! Apparently, they have initiated some sort of security guard which prevented that, thankfully. . . I have a strong feeling that you're going to have to take/tow it to the dealer, dude.

Can't take the key out of the switch


The very first thing to do is to make sure that you have the key in the "off position." A common mistake is turning the key too far, and you can tell this is the case if you can still play the radio but the car is off and you can't remove the key. Likewise, you want to make sure that your car is in park. Automatic cars won't let you remove the key if it is in any position except park.
Jiggle the Wheel The next step would be to move your steering wheel gently back and forth while you try to take the key out. At times, the steering wheel position locks the ignition, so simply turning the wheel may let you take your key out of the ignition.
Check the Battery Depending on your car, your Key Stuck in the Ignition if the battery is dead. If this is the case, don't try to remove the key until the battery is at least partially charged.
Use a Bobby Pin If you have tried all of the other options and nothing works, you can get creative with household objects. Sometimes pulling the key out with a pair of pliers will work, but never jerk it side to side, as this can lead to it breaking and even worse problems. If you have a bobby pin or similar object handy, you can take off the small cap that covers the access port for the ignition lock override and press it lightly with the bobby pin.
Try to Loosen It Sometimes loosening the key with something like electrical lube or silicone spray will also help do the trick and get your key free. Once again, be careful so the key doesn't break off in the ignition.

How can I start my car if the ignition key broke in my 1995 firebird with vats


do you still have the key end with the chip in it yes/no and is the key stuck in the cylinder if it is you can get it out with a bobby pin and crazy glue or if your scared just try to use bobby pins to work it out if you use the glue straighten the end of the pin out trying not to damage the plastic tip then a little drop of crazy glue a steady hand or something to hold it in place for 3 -4 minutes so it sets all the way will allow you to pull out the broken piece then take that and the rest of the key to the hardware part of Lowe's /home depot and have the key cloned on there key programming machine and cut and your in the money Eugene just be calm and get it done you can do it

Have key broken off in ignition switch of my 89 ramcharger. whats best way to remove or to replace ignition switch?


you can use a thin scroll saw blade, or jig saw blade and grind the back side off leaving a nice little hook at the end. use two of these to grip the valleys of the key left behind. You can use other items like exacto blades or a bobby pin, the idea is to get under one of those valleys on the key and lift it out. Good luck.

Door ajar light stays on when all doors are closed


After long hard research I found the problem to these explorers and f150s etc. Fuse 17 is overloaded with electronics and when the wire that's ran to that circuit gets hot it causes glitches with the electronics. Ford set the harness up to fuse 17 like a outlet with a dozen plugs. You have constant and ignition wires ran off the same circuit. The wires are crossed up in the harness and ocaasionally glitch when overheated. Ford should have designed it better. I found a solution which I created which is a bypass to this problem that Ford designed. First sit in the driver's seat and look to the left of your windhield. you should see a pillar or column in the corner of the vehicle. It's in between the windshield and the driver door. Get a flat head screwdriver and remover the column in the corner. you should see a green harness. Disconnect harness and turn your key forward to make sure your windows work. If they do, good, if not check your fuse. The problem is in the top harness. This is where the short or overload is located. Remove your top console or overhead domelamp fixture in the front of the vehicle. Unhook it completely and remove the center panel where your radio is located. On the back of the radio you should see the radio harness and the wires should be labeled. Unhook the negative battery cable and splice into the "ignition switch wire" on the back of the radio. If not sure you can look it up online "Ford explorer radio wiring diagram." Get a 16 gauge wire or regular speaker wire and twist it to the igntion wire. Secure the bond with duct tape or wire caps so they don't come aloose or touch metal. run the wire to fuse number 28 which should be "radio start". strip a piece of wire on the opposite end that's not connected. The one that's going to fuse 28. Pull fuse 28 out and stick the wire into the outlet where the fuse goes. You will need a test light for this to determine which side is the hot side. Stick the wire into the hot side of the fuse outlet. put fuse back in on top of the wire. The fuse should stuff the wire down into the outlet when inserting it. Hook up the battery cable and twist forward, the radio should come on. If not check fuses or connections. The bottom green harness is where power is ditrubuted to the rest of the electronics in the vehicle. If you look at the harness on the inside you should see prongs or metal looking teeth on the inside. The second prong from the top is what powers the dome lights. test to make sure,put a test light on the second prong with the door open. If it lights up continue to hold it with the door closed and it should go off with your rear dome lamp that should be working. at the bottom of the prongs you should see square holes. stick the test light into the square hole under the prong you tested. It should light up. Get a paper clip or cotter pin and some more speaker wire and bond the wire to the clip or cotter pin by wrapping the wire around it at the end where the loop is located. Once you done that stick the pin or clip into the square hole firmly. On the domelight fixture there is a harness that connects to it that has a black wire,a blue/black wire and two green and yellow wires. Unhook the battery cable again and cut the harness about 4-5 inches and hook the wire that's hooked into the bottom green harness to the blue/black wire on the lamp fixture. hook the black wire up to a good ground on the harness. you can use the top or bottom harness for a good ground. hook up battery cable and open the door and presto!! you should have light. If not check your bulbs and check the metal connectors that the bulbs sit in with your test light to make sure there is continuity there. If you have a sunroof or vanity lamps they can all be hooked up the same way in this bypass procedure. Get some more wire,cotter pins or paper clips and go through the prongs with your test light to hook it all up with this bypass method.

That black plasict box with part number P/N: 136-2268 is a Audiovox car alarm brain. On one side it should have 4 individual connector slots. First one is a blue color for a 2 prong, second is a small white with 2 prongs, third is also white whith a 4 prong, and the last one is 2 prong is a off white color. The other side should have a long port for a 11 prong horizontal connector.
