comment Most Efficient Way To Run AC
It seems like this technology would only work on a vehicle that has a thermostat type climate control (where you set the desired temperature). On the type that just has a hot/cold knob, how would the compressor know how hard to work?

comment Car won't start/respond to remote or anything until headlights are turned on
You could also try replacing the battery in the remote. If it is low, you could find that it works intermittently, and it is sometimes easy to convince yourself that random intermittent failure is correlated with something that's actually unrelated.

comment What's this strangely marked control on my Eclipse?
Have you checked the owner's manual? They nearly always have a diagram of all the dashboard controls with a description of each one.

comment Driving for about a kilometer with very low tire pressure
I don't see how the suspension could be at fault if you are losing pressure when the car is not even being driven. I'm starting to become suspicious of what this dealer is telling you. By the way, is the pressure loss in all four tires, or just one?

comment Temporary repair for broken clutch pedal sensor
Another possible purpose of the sensor: to disengage the cruise control when the clutch is put in. My car has such a feature, though I am not sure if it is controlled by the clutch pedal sensor or something else.

comment Clutch Pedal will not depress
Yea, please check the km. Depending on your convention for decimal points it looks like either two thousand kilometers or two million, both of which seem unlikely.

comment Driving for about a kilometer with very low tire pressure
Am I understanding you correctly? Your tires are only a couple of months old, you fill them to 35 psi every week, and by the end of the week they are down to 28-30 psi? That's definitely not normal. I think something must be wrong with the tires or the way they were installed.

How long did you drive it for after jumping? Was it enough time to charge the battery?

comment Renault Clio II streaky / greasy windscreen
Is the dirt on the inside or the outside? Does it come off if you scratch it with your fingernail? What if you rub it firmly with a dry cloth or paper tissue? (I find that it's easiest to see/clean windshield dirt in the morning or evening, when the sun shines directly on it at a low angle.)

comment After swapping batteries, truck is really dead, except the headlights.
I mean, battery A doesn't work in the sense that it doesn't run the Tacoma. What about the types and ratings?

comment After swapping batteries, truck is really dead, except the headlights.
To clarify: so initially Battery A was in the Siena and went dead, and Battery B was in the Tacoma. And now battery B is in the Siena and works, and battery A is in the Tacoma and doesn't work. What exact types are the batteries? Do they have similar ratings (amp-hours, cranking amps)?
