We tried to reset it and we can get shifter out of park but on the dash car still in drive

I have a 2009 Suzuki XL7. I noticed a few weeks ago, while the air conditioning was running, that I couldn't change the vents that it blew out of. When I turned the directional knob to any postion, head/head and feet/ defrost/etc, that it would stay blowing at my head and feet no matter what. Now a few weeks later, its getting cold out. I tried to turn the hot/cold knob to heat, and it still blows cold air. After looking up many things online. My husband took apart the panels under the drivers side/steering wheel. and the glove box/passenger side. A video on YouTube was showing the actuators. and levers/pullies that would move while turning the knobs even when the actuator is off. These are not moving. We aren't quite sure what to do or try. he said he can feel that heat is building up somewhere up front, but its like its not coming through. Can we manually open a door to let it in?? Where is it located? Is it possible for both actuators h/c and directional one to go bad at the same time??

Clicking noise when wheel turns.

Clicking noise when wheel turns.

the car decelerates and a stabilize traction control message comes up on the message center

was driving fine. Then the information lights and notifications came on and were all flashing...then they stopped and the car died. We put it in park but then it was locked up and we could not remove the key. Everything was dead

I was told the ECM had to be replaced. Since I never had a problem with ECM and my car not starting before timing chain repair, could the ECM have been damaged while replacing timing chain or the connections to it.

On a regular bases free, is it the timid belt?
It's been like this for a long time

I did tuneup air filter oil change estil feol

Do I need to drain the radiator to make this replacement?

how many more hours to replace timing chains?moo

my 2006 Suzuki xl7 shows the fuel gauge as 0 on panel though the tank is full. But while driving the gauge moves a bit and at stops the empty light comes on . Is it costly to replace ? How can I take the gauge out without removing the gas tank?

When lifted on a stand, the wheels have excessive play in the front end. The wheel nuts and bearings are tight.
Where is the excessive play coming from?
Both front axels,have an equal amount of play, in the left and the right.

Over heating gauge crazy

When you start it takes a while to accelerate and won't pass 30 mph unless you press on the gas pedal hard.

my car makes a vvvvvmmm sound when I push brakes I know sorry this is the closest I can think of. Sounds on the left wheel side or front middle under my break pedal. Was told not breaks or Rogers. Help please

took my car to les schwab three times. my brakes, roters are good. not sure if the noise I am hearing is coming from left tire somewhere in the middle of the break. but only when I push on the breaks you hear this humming noise.
maybe my rear differential? or abs? help I was told I shouldn't be afraid there is no danger of some day not being able to stop..??? any advice would be much appreaciated.

After the stop leak, it stoped leaking now only cold air comes out and still need to find out what the main problem is so i can fix it?!
Thank you for your time
