I started to observe a problem which initially I didn't know what to believe (it happened rarely), basically the AC goes off for about 30 seconds up to 1 minute then starts and works fine. The only thing is that this started to happen more often (like almost everytime) as it was doing it in the past (once a month .. couple of weeks perhaps).

The car has trouble accelerating and does not select gear,the lights are deam.



The wipers were worked on only to find out the wiper motor and the switch were fine. It was the hydraulic arm. It was after all was put back together that the air bag light would not go off.


I have been told that it is not necessary to remove the radiator but, other than that, I don't know where to start. Can someone please give me step by step instruction on this procedure? I have the new one ready for installation. Thank you.

I have to charge my battery every morning for about half an hour just so my car starts. Once i turn my car off and wait for a couple hours, it won't turn back on due to my battery being dead.
