I'll try to answer. May not be much help, but if you need new leads for your multimeter, you need to take it with you to get the correct jacks that fit in it. As long as the jacks fit securely, you can buy a number of leads.
If you need more help, post back.

SOURCE: In response to clarification request Honda 2005 ...The sound

IT sounds like the whining can be comming from gears that are not being well lubricated, especially when the sound increases as the car warms up.

You will need to check the fluid level for your transmission. Make sure it is adequate for this model (you may need to reference the owner's manual).

I'm not sure if this van has a differential in a place where you can check it. Bad news, you may need to visit a Honda dealer. Try to get them to diagnose the problem, then tell them you don't want it fixed. Most shops will diagnose for free, some will charge you the labor time for a minimum of 1 hour.

sorry not better news...

Rear window has no power to it

you need to get a voltage tester or multitester to check the supply voltage to the rear window motor which sould be about 12 volts.To get access to the motor you need to open the facia cover of the rear door.Locate the cable going to the motor, then if you can see the connection to the motor put one end of the multitester pronge (red tip one) to the motor cable connection. Put the other multitester pronge (black tip) end to the metal part of the door. The black tester prong tip should touch a bare metal part of the door ,not a painted surface cause electricity cannot flow on painted surface, usually on a hole with screw on the hole.On the motor side you should touch the bare metal part of the motor cable connection with the red tip pronge of the tester. If the multitester registers 12 volts then you got power supply. check cable connection to the motor , and the connection of the motor body to the rear door to see if its tight enough. If it does not work then its the motor that needs to be check or replaced.

2002 mustang door lock problem,driver side all new switches

if switches are new, I would checck the wiring in the door jamb between the door and the chasiss. wiring most likely in a rubber sheeting. and drivers door is where to start, this door gets the most use, thus flexing these wires most times to point of breaking. hold lock button down in attempt to lock doors, and while doing so flex wire harness referenced above, possible flexing will make contact long enough if wires broken to lock doors. then check continuity on eack wire to determine where to repair.

Let's see if I got this right.The vehicle can't be driven because of legal issues with the emissions test, and it has to be driven 200 miles before it can be tested. Talk about your catch 22. Jack that thing up, put it on jack stands, fire it up, put it in gear, and watch the miles add up.

I need to replace broken lugnuts

How to Replace Wheel Lug Nuts
(DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 1.5 hours)

1. Lug Nut

1. Floor Jack
2. Jack Stand Set
3. Ball Peen Hammer
4. Tire Iron
5. Socket Set

Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a solid level surface to ensure that it does not roll or lean when raised.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Break the lug nuts loose but do not remove. Using a floor jack, raise up the front of the vehicle.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: The pinch welds or the frame rails are the two best locations for vehicle support.

Step 4 Remove the lugs nuts. Inspect the threads on the wheel studs.

Step 5 Install the new lug nuts by hand making sure they thread properly.

Step 6 Tighten each lug nut in a star pattern. Lower the vehicle to the ground and torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer’s specifications.
o Tip: Refer to the owner's manual for the exact location on the vehicle.

Step 7 Road test the vehicle to verify lug nut repair.

I really hope help with this (remember comment and rated this post).

I bought new frnt rotors 4 my pontiac sv6 montana and the old ones have a torx screw in them and the new ones donot.did i buy the wrong rotors?

Not necessarily. If the store correctly cross referenced your rotors they are a match. Often after market products will have different styles of hardware. As long as the size and threading is the same you are OK to use the old torx. These bolts can really seize up over time. Spray some liquid wrench or WD-40 and let sit. Best to use an impact driver on theses as a slow wrenching torque can rip the heads off before they break loose. Keep the old hdw.

Power seat, mirrors

no its not hard to replace and test with repair manual haynes or chiltons will do and a multitester consult one of our expert techs online chat or try this
first make sure fuses are good then remove switch and test to see theres power to main switch then each individual switch using multitester at 20Vdc setting
then if theres power to switch and it doesnt work at all replace it,
if there is power but only part of the switch works and it is a multi switch control switch you can test its leads to the motors them selves follow wiring to probe using multitester same setting as you try individual functions up down forward etc and isolate which motor is faulty and replace most motors and switches are dealer items but heres a company may have it
