The steps I would take: Remove all the interior, including the headliner, and dispose of it at a hazardous materials site. It's not salvageable. Now you have actually removed the mold and have little that can easily act as a substrate on which mold can grow. (Note that mold grows very well on leather too.) Fix the source of the mold, which is likely ...

You can't clean the mold. The mold is caused by something else. FIX THAT. The "something else" is water leaks into the car body. You HAVE to resolve those, or the mold will simply come back the next time it rains. The water leaks are causing 100% humidity inside the car body. That is causing mold, but it's also causing rapid corrosion of the ...

You could have a fuse for the truck .Check the tripping time specs for the fuse .You will find that short overloads will not blow it .I have not done this but think that a fuse of between say 200Amps and 400 Amps would be a starting point .

My Espaces (several over the years) all with fibreglass bodies, often gave me a shock presumably from built up static. Food for thought - never on wet days. Never tried a grounding strip, but feel that with one, static would automatically go to earth through one rather than through me.

First of all, thermal flashers do NOT blink faster when a bulb blows - they flash slower. Bulb-out indication by "hyper-flashing" is a function of electronic relay flashers and some solid state flashers. Thermal flashers and electronic relay flashers can both suffer from corroded contacts. Electronic flashers can function with no solid state ...

I was able to find out thanks to this pdf: fispa.it/sites/all/files/allegati/84.2081_Ita_Eng_(99.8001).pdf the two signal cables, I was wrong when I did the measurements that's why the voltage did not make sense and was not stable. For everyone who has and wants to know the signals of the CTS 4089 throttle position sensor I will share it in this post: ...

The clicking sound you hear is coming from the starter solenoid. This typically, but not always, suggests that the battery is low in terms of not just voltage but also amps. In other words, you can have correct battery voltage, which is somewhere around 12.6 to 12.7 volts, but not enough amps to turn over the starter motor. By "jump starting the van&...

Have you found the physical location of the relay? If so, testing it is pretty easy. You have a power/ground which switches it, then there are the pass throughs. 87 & 87a will either/or be on, depending on whether the solenoid is energized (I don't remember which). Powering the connection at 86 energizes the circuit. At rest you should see continuity ...
