Mike Head was upfront about what needed to be fixed and what could wait and always quoted before any work was started. I also liked that they took my truck through emissions for me and made sure it passed before I came to pick it up.

Questions Answered by Apex Automotive and Emissions
ac system is functioning but only when you...
Are you certain the problem is PCM related? How did you arrive at that conclusion? It's more likely a pressure switch or other sensor is failing to authorize compressor function; or, that the level of refrigerant is low.
When I pull the alternator fuse to trouble...
Your problem most likely is in the Stator Circuit of the alternator. If the Stator circuit is shorted to open (disconnected), the charge warning indicator will turn on, even if the alternator is operating normally.

The charging warning indicator will turn on if the Stator circuit voltage is zero. The warning indicator will turn off if the Stator circuit voltage is greater than 5 volts.

In my experience, SRS lights on Mercedes' range from less expensive (seat belt buckle sensor) to most expensive (SRS module + dealer programming). The only way to know is to have your car's computer scanned. SRS is an acronym for Supplemental Restraint System which is a fancy way of describing the car's air bags. When the SRS light is on, the airbags are turned off by the computer and will not deploy in a crash. Hope this helps. Thank for your inquiry.
Check the battery and alternator and they ...
You don't want to reset the check engine light. Doing so will erase valuable diagnostic data and failure records. I've seen reduce power mode due to failed thermostatically controlled fan clutch, a shorted (APP) Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor ground wire, a Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) Solenoid; I'm sure there are several other possible causes.
Thank you for such a well written question. I hope my answer is as such.

Problem: HVAC Mode Control Module

Here's how it works: On cold start, most drivers back through their exhaust fumes. Cars are designed to automatically close off the cabin from outside air when you enter Reverse gear. The little servo motor is trying to close the vent door but the gears are stripped. It just keeps trying and trying, making that clicking grinding noise.

When you put the car in Drive, the system reverts to Fresh Air Mode and the grinding stops.

Common problem on an otherwise well designed Chrysler 300.

It's a 1 day fix that costs 220.00.

The power steering system needs to be fully examined by a mechanic of your choice. Both a steering pump failure and a steering gear box failure would result in hard steering. Steering is an important system that should be inspected by a professional. Thanks.
Your 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor is equipped with an onboard computer. You should start by having the computer scanned for error codes. Many shops, including ours, will perform the scan at no charge. Thanks.
Probably not enough information available to diagnose this kind of problem without looking at the vehicle.

Is the check engine light ON?

I did initial research and see no known issues but willing to investigate further.
When making turns it slows and stall, but ...
The problem may be in fuel delivery, ignition, or transmission. It really needs an experienced person to help you discern the exact problem. Thanks.
