Air bag light on ? Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the air bag control module . That's the way to find out what the problem is . Suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop.

There is only one system, so your conclusion doesn't make sense. If the front evaporator is leaking, the whole system will lose charge, and the back will not be cooling. Your problem may actually be the front blend door. Recommend you get a second opinon. Evaporator replacement is much more than $300.

did you change it yourself. if not i would guess the shop did something wrong and call them to fix the mistake free of charge. also did they do an alignment after changing the rack. that needs to be done to not wear the tires out in miles.

There should be a actuator valve on the line that determines if the heater core gets hot water or cold water. When the heater is selected, the actuator opens and lets hot water into the heater core. It sounds like that actuator is corroded and not opening.

May have not reconditioned the heads correctly may have a valve issues because the valve spring is bad or could be an injector or gaskets could be leaking on intake manifold could be a lot of different things that could have happened when they serviced the heads. Best thing to do is compression check find out the range for your compression to be at on the gague. That will tell you what’s possibly happening inside the engine. But you have to look in a chilton or haynes repair manual it will tell you what’s up when you read the compression testing gague.

there is a torque converter clutch servo/solenoid that gets faults and results in what you describe
run the fault codes first then take it to an accredited auto specialist shop for a proper diagnosis
AT this point from what you say It is not a converter or transmission problem but could be as simple as a wire connection or a TCM module problem

I can't say for sure but it could be the tensioner pully. I don't think you should be able to move it side to side. That would indicate that the bearing is worn.

Try to shoot some WD-40 into the sheath that the cables slide in. Shoot it where the sheath ends at the back of the hub. Then work the cables by applying and releasing the brake. If they don't release, try pulling and working the sheath at the hub while adding more WD-40.

My best guess is the switch is bad. Did you replace it? The problem could also be the bcm, but I would test the switch first. Remove it and check it with an ohmmeter.


Turn Signal Switch

The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR system wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
  3. Remove the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from behind the combination switch.
  5. Remove the mounting screws securing the combination switch to the steering column adapter collar.
  6. Remove the combination switch from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Install the combination switch to the steering column adapter collar. Tighten the combination switch mounting screws.
  2. Reconnect the electrical connector to the combination switch.
  3. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds and tighten the retaining screws.
  4. Reconnect the negative battery cable and check all functions of the combination switch for proper operation.
