I got an estimate to replace the compressor and belts for $1,325 - is this a fair cost?

I think I know but is the coolant temperature sensor located about 4" towards passenger side along same housing as the thermostat?

Get code 442 pertaining to evaporate syst but light will not reset

When I parked and went inside it was okay. Had to boost it off when I tried to re-start it. Drove about five miles and parked in my garage. Turned it off and tried to re-start it(no luck). Let it sit over night and it started right up the next morning. I am hesitant about driving it, because I don't know when it is not going to start.

No pattern. Happened 2-3 times over a month. Outside temp in 70's, no rain. Battery drained unless car is driven in 2-3 days. Parked in office lot during day when this happens.

Besides the cold & wet this happens without pattern. Locks can be relocked, lights turned off but in 10 seconds or 10 minutes it may happen again.

At first, I would turn the steering wheel all the way left, then all the way right, and shut off the engine for about a minute, then when I turned the engine back on, the "BAS-ESP" light was off. But now, the light stays on, no matter what I do. Even with this warning light on, the car seems to run just fine. Should I worry and stop driving the car? What does this "BAS-ESP' mean?

the motor on the windsheild is not completly out because u can hear it and also it goes halfway then gets stuck in the middle

TI cannot move the seat up or down back or forward. It stopped working sometime ago and started back, now it is not working again.

I also noticed when I release my emergency brake I'm having to pull harder on the release to disengage the emergency brake.
