ignition switch problem

I replaced my ignition switch today on my 2008 jk. in doing so i broke the pin that goes up into it. I thought it was called the actuator pin just like the jeep tj however it is not and I cant figure out what to buy to get it fixed. It will not start without it

I found the ignition switch on mymoparparts.com but I don't see a separate actuator pin. Is the pin separate on yours, or is it a part of the cylinder that broke off.?

the pin is what broke. it comes from the housing that holds the key cylinder. as the key rotates the pin pushes into the switch.

I am a fan of YouTube mechanic south main auto. He recently did a video of a Jeep Liberty with a problem that sounds the same as you are describing. He was able to get the internal parts that broke.

Here is the video:
