either no properly engaged in the drive or the rubber drive bush in the propeller is broken ( as in sheared off to protect the prop )--most likely
fix is a new rubber bush pressed into the prop

50 horse 4 stwont go into reverse gear due to shaft problems

the drive shaft just drives a pinion gear in the prop box that drives to gears that spin in opposite directions all the time
by selecting forward with the selector rod , a dog gear is moved forward to mesh with one gear that is turning or moves the other way to engage the other gear that is turning
that is the forward or reverse action for the prop
if you have forward but no reverse the it is not a drive shaft problem but a selector rod adjustment that is not moving the dog far enough to engage the running gear

I have a 2008 Ford Expedition EL with 3rd row power seat. The driver's side is stuck in the down position. I get power when pressing the down side of the button, but nothing going the other way.

The switch is a common problem and replacement is easy. The harness, improbable. You answered your question about the fuse when you said the it works in one direction. BTW, the switch is not expensive.

Insignia. Why is the automatic transmission clunking?

You don't say how old the car is but if the clunk happens when you engage the gears it is likely to be the prop shaft rubber coupling know sometimes as the prop shaft donut

95 jeep wrangler clunking noise when clutch engages

Did you have a look at the prop shafts universal joints if they are worn or dry? Also check the sliding joint for wear if the prop shaft has them.

Won't start but the starter still clicks

This sounds like a dead or dying battery. Autozone or other car parts places will hook up an analyzer to determine if the battery can be restored.

If you're going to be deployed again invest in an AGM battery like Optima red top. Make sure its charged and take it out of the vehicle while deployed. Check charge again when you get back hook it up and you'll be good to go.

Running board stopped working

More than likely you accidentally disabled the feature if you have already checked the fuses and they are good.
Your owners manual tells you how to re-enable the power deploying running boards .
I'll paste a copy of the directions for you :

To enable/disable the power running board feature, refer to the Message
center in this chapter.
• When this feature is disabled <OFF>, the running boards will move to
the stowed position regardless of the position of the doors.
• When this feature is enabled <AUTO>, the running boards will move
back to the correct positions based off of the door positions.

(Message Center )

Setup menu
Press this control for the following
• Reset to English (if in another
• System Check
• Oil Life
• Units (English/Metric)
• Autolamp Delay (if equipped)
• Easy/Entry Exit
• Air Suspension (if equipped)
• Autolock (if equipped)
• Power Liftgate (if equipped)
• Power Deployable Running Boards (if equipped)
• Compass Zone (if equipped)
• Compass Calibration (if equipped)
• Language

Power Deployable Running Boards (if equipped)
This feature automatically deploys the side running boards for easy
entry/exit from the vehicle or for cleaning.
1. To disable/enable the power
running board feature with the
vehicle in P (Park), select this
function from the SETUP control for
the current display mode.
2. Press the RESET control to select the running boards setting as
• AUTO: the running boards will automatically deploy when a door is
opened and automatically retract when the door is closed,
• OUT: the running boards will remain deployed regardless of the doors
being open/closed. This setting can be used when washing the vehicle, or
accessing the roof rack. The running boards will stow and enter AUTO
mode when the vehicle speed exceeds 5 mph ( kph),
• OFF: the running boards will remain IN regardless of the doors being

Let me know how this turns out.
