comment air conditioner no longer working in 2005 Chevy Impala?
I would take it to a shop, unless you own the gauges. Basically, plug gauges in and run AC. Should see vacuum on low and some pressure quantity (depends on car) on high.

I'm not sure if it was working before the brake job was done, but is there any relevance to this? Was it working when it went in, and now it is not?

comment Nissan Hardbody Heavy Duty Rear Leaf Springs
@jp2code Are you planning on needing the HD springs? Or are you adjusting the truck's ride? My question is, why not save the money for new HD, if they are actually what you need? You never know how used, the used ones are.

comment Two Mercedes Electronic Keys - One Works As a Remote - One Works to Start The Car - How Can These Be Combined?
Can you post a pic? Sometimes the luxury brands provide a valet key, so your locked compartments remain locked.

comment 1 Piece versus 2 Piece Drive Shaft
Great answer! The wrong angles anywhere in your vehicle will wreck havoc on any bearings and sealing surfaces.

comment How can I keep a car window up?
The less classy way is duck tape on the top and bottom, but you must maintain the tape to ensure the window stays up. The answer is the only "safe" way, other options might work out, but I recommend just fixing it or having it secured in place.

comment Where is the fuse for the front windshield washer pump on a '09 Chevy Traverse?
Do you know how to jump your pump, and bypass? That's the easy way of checking. 12V battery can do it.

Is there any rust in the piston housing? Can you replace the sliders or clean any rust if present?

comment Can I get bluetooth music enabled in my 2009 BMW 528i?
If you go with an aftermarket radio option, ensure they know how to bypass the radio in your optical loop. If not the whole entertainment system might be down.

comment Mercedes Atego OBD2 live data codes
Can you read any of the codes? I very seriously doubt you will have access to Mercedes Benz specific codes, without their software packages. Manufacturers are only required to give you access to OBD-II codes.

@tarheel Like I suspected, and Larry verified, you need a switch module.
