  2. Air Con Not Working

    Check the clutch is moving manually with engine switched off feel for easy or tight movement. Then find the sight glass in the system see if you can see any form of liquid there if not quick and easy way use one the we will check your AC places like ats or such like they can connect and check the system. it does not take much for the A/C to stop when gas levels are low and this can happen when the a/c is not used as the compressor seal drys up and gas leaks past this point often also so its always good to run a/c whenever possible even in winter just to keep system in operating condition. let ne know after the above checks

  5. 2002 Is 300 - Alarm Keeps Going Off

    its within the lights structure as a unit simply drop the light out disconnect the wire you see going to the light unit. Before that do you have a tvss black alarm siren? or do you have a what looks like a horn unit that acts as the sounder as the tvss unit were always palying up a lot try that
  6. Remanufactured Caliper

    Brakes i buy genuine calipers for the is at a very good price from the dealer. The caliper i did not mind the price it was the shoe fitting kit and caliper pin kit that really made me think "HOW MUCH" that took a few days to get over as its a lot for a few pieces but as they say its got to be done
  7. if in doubt get it done thats best option use genuine parts and change tensioner and idler also ask them to check water pump while they are at it and all other drive belts too.

    the question is why would it want to tell you its active you already know that. In all the years i have not seen an airbag light/symbol on unless there is a problem or fault.. Or do you mean the light is a display light not a diagnostic light?
