What does TSB stand for

Technical Service Bulletins, or TSBs, are recommended procedures for repairing vehicles. They are a form of diagnosis. Not to be confused with recalls, a TSB is issued by a vehicle manufacturer when there are several occurrences of an unanticipated problem.

2001 bravada service awd light comes on and off. It is off more often than not. All seems to be okay with car. Could this be a sensor issue?

The switch itself is often the problem. It has three resistors in it, and as they get older their resistance changes a bit, confusing the electronic control module that controls the 4WD unit. Once it gets a confusing signal, it stays confused until you turn the car off an back on.
Sometimes turning the car off, moving the switch one position over and then back, and restarting the car will reset it, other times not.
Replacing the switch is usually the answer. The part is about $20, but it takes a shop about an hour to pull the dash apart to get at it, so you're usually looking at about $150 to have it replaced (assuming that is what is really wrong).
Note - if you have an AWD setting for your truck, and it seems to get stuck there, you really should get this fixed. RUnning in AWD setting all the time puts extra wear on the transfer case and to a certain extent the front hubs. The Trailblazer and Bravada should really only be in AWD setting when the roads are slightly slippery.

Cruise control on 2008 chrysler sebring is not working what is the solution?

Hi Vada, I'm glad to help!

Vada, in the earlier years cruise control used to be very easy to find problems and repair the issue. NOW, with multiplex wiring and confusing calculated computer controlled cruise control its much harder to find what caused the issue are caused the cruise not to work at all. Most of the time though, when the computer gets confused about the calculations it also stops that component from working. SO, the first thing we do as technicians is to clear all codes with our scanner and see if the wipers start working again if they do this means the computer was simply confused. NOW, sense you don't have a scan tool you can try this: remove the negative battery cable for 20 seconds then reinstall it and see if the wipers are working. If they still are not working then they will need to be checked by a technician. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Vada.

You need the cars air bag system repaired (SRS System)

Only then can the issues be reset-- as you suggest or would like

No reset or anything you can do-- but write a big check or two
to fix all the issues

My nissan sunny slams each time i take my foot off the gas when drivingwhat could be the problem

Confused !!

You now need to have the issues properly diagnosed

You didn't do that,you had it just checked for codes,
unless you have something to add to your statement

That tells you nothing

Did you not go along for a road test,have to do that
every time before you leave any vehicle?

If it slams for you,it slams for a repair shop,so it seems
strange your here,why wasn't something tested or some
solution proposed?

Took my car to have check engine light checked. It said misfire cylinder 2. I replaced the spark plug wires and spark plugs and it still says misfire cylinder 2. What is the next step? Thanks Steve

In modern cars so much can go wrong to indicate an issue and a computer in the car can get confused as to what is really occurring. In most cars a misfire indicates either an incorrect firing order, shorted wires, bad plugs, or bad coil. Since you have replaced the wires and plugs we can rule those out. Im also assuming after the second engine code you pulled #2 plug and made sure it wasnt fouled with oil, was gapped correctly, and reinserted. To produce a sufficient spark for combustion the alternator sends power to a "Coil" which is in reality a storage point that then sends an amplified electrical current down the spark plug wire to the cylinder to fire the plug. If the car is truly misfiring you will notice a rough idle, fluctuating RPM's, and lack of acceleration. If you are experiencing any of these I would look at replacing the coil. If you arent experiencing any of these I would have the code cleared again and complete one drive cycle 100 miles and then have codes read again. If you still get a Misfire error some other causes known to occur with Rio's are fuel filter issues, gas caps, and fuel injector issues. Although rare, these can cause issues with the cars fuel delivery and emissions which can confuse the sensor in the ECU. I would try injector cleaner, replace the fuel filter, and gas cap . If funds are an issue then based on symptoms I would start with injector cleaner first $3, Filter $12, Gas cap $12, Coil $48 to $200+
