High Idle No heater and buzzer

I was looking under the dash last night trying to fixed the defroster flapper and pulled the only vacuum hose I could find connected to a white motor looking thing on the driver fenderwell. Anyways after I pulled this line the engine idled high, the wipers quit working, the headlight buzzer goes off with the engine running, and the heater fan doesnt work anymore?
Could it be a fuse or what?
There's no smog stuff or vacuum other than the advance from the distributor to the carb
The heater controls and wipers. The washer fluid doesn't work either but never has before this
the 229 was swapped for a 208

Pulling a vacuum hose would have nothing to do with the wipers quitting and the headlight buzzer buzzing. I think you knocked a few wires loose. As for the vacuum line, hook it back up and see what happens.

Ok I think I figured it out

Ignition switch is shorting out
It will actually lock up and I couldn't get the
thing turned off.
it seems to be the key switch
Is it hard to replace the ignition switch?

Sorry used the wrong words

Would it be the ignition switch or the lock cylinder?
IF i move the key back and forth a little in the on position
I can make the heater fan, the wipers, and the radio, lighter
all stop for some reason the buzzer comes on.
So would that be the cylinder or the switch?
Also too the cylinder/key got stuck on and I couldn't get
the jeep shutdown for like 5 minutes till I fiddled around enough
to get it to shutoff For some reason the Edlebrock carb gets stuck in
a fast idle when this happens too but I don't know if thats related
I can pull the key out of the cylinder with it on too but
that happened to an old chevy I had never affected it like this jeep.

That sounds more like the ignition switch on the top of the column under the dash then the tumbler. Ther's not much that can go wrong in the key switch. If moving the key affects the electrical then the ignition switch is most likely the culprit.

Maybe ncjeepers can help out on this one. He is pretty good with these kinds of malfunctions.

Forget about the bad ignition.

Let it run, but keep putting gas in it every few minutes or so. That way, it will always be warmed-up and ready to go!

Ok now I got the cylinder moving again but

it won't start now. I guess I'll just have to break it down.

Sounds like it's already broke-down. Maybe you need to build it up.
