    During a routine oil change my service manager said I needed software downloads for my cruise, radio, etc , cost $100
    is this a legitimate charge? I've never heard of it before and he couldn't tell me if would affect future warranty work if I didn't have it done.

      Yep. They use a computerized stepper motor to control the
      Temperature Blend Door. I don't exactly know where that is
      on your truck. But I'd put my money on a bad Temperature
      Blend Door Actuator.

      I will just get a start on your question or problem & we can continue on another day

      While some may disagree you need to always replace the entire battery cable,never
      cut off the ends

      If the ends are shot then there is corrosion etc inside & a reason you had to get rid of the
      ends

      Today's vehicles are very sensitive to voltage drops,so replace the cables

      If the battery is 2 years old 4 years old or a senior citizen it may have failed

      At least have it load tested

      Was fine for several hours-apparently not
      So said it wasn't alternator-really what was it then?
      But never really tested it-why was that?

      Sounds like your talking about a repair shop you went to
      in some back water town with no experience at all

      For your knowledge use the internet,google & you tube video to see what
      a Parasitic Current Drain test is & how it is done--that may very well find your
      battery drain problem--IF --that is the question you ask about

      I would seek out a different shop for sure

      You just tell the autostore what you need, tell them the year--make and model, engine size, where applicable. Maybe I misunderstood your question?

    Housing and light bulb for this truck.
    cup cover at end of bulb has fallen off, this piece is to large to pull through opening for bulb replacement, does this mean I need to replace the whole housing?

    How do we fix rear heat on a 1998 dodge van 3.8
    We have heat in the front of the van but it blows COLD in the rear. The console lights like the fan and windshield wipers, defrost would blink until they decided to stop blinking. Replaced console and plug which solved that problem but still have no back heat. ...
