Hey guys, I'm on a quest to bring my brother's truck up to speed (Specs in profile). Every time I type up a question on Google links to this forum come up. I figure is better to sign up.
Long story short he signed up for the Army and wants to sell his truck but has yet to take a step in that direction. While he's at boot I thought I would be a generous brother and try to solve some of his problems. Maybe I could convince him not to sell (for various reasons). This is where you guys come in.
As of right now there are 3 things that need to be addressed, as long as a little back story...
1) The airbag light is on. In relation, the light to the right of the stereo that says "Passenger Airbag is off" (or something of that nature). My general direction would be to just pull the bulbs and disable the air bag--pulling the fuse as well. Pure and simple.
2) The tire pressure light is on. My brother said he's aired the tires up accordingly, but he's a little reluctant to buy new sensors. I'm geared towards abandoning this whole tire pressure thing. Yank the bulbs, a true auto enthusiast checks his own tire pressure. Always been my motto on the topic.
3) There's some sort of short going on. Occasionally something will drain the battery even when the car is off.
This is by far the biggest issue. My brother replaced the battery before leaving for boot. We initially thought it was the AC since he claimed that it was frosting up as soon as the truck started even tho the AC wasn't on. I figure there's no real harm in unplugging the AC. Thus far this battery issue has only occurred once without the AC.
Any input, or directions pointed would be much appreciated. If my brother doesn't sell his truck, you may be hearing more of me, possibly him.
