That's not something she's going to be able to fix,unless she's real mechanically inclined. If you don't trust shop's take it to pep boy's or the dealer. They won't hose you.

Service Air Bag light on

DTC B0058 Right Front/Passenger Pretensioner Deployment Loop Open.
The passenger seat belt pretensioner deployment loop consists of a seat belt pretensioner-RF and the seat belt pretensioner-RF high and low circuits. A shorting bar used within the seat belt pretensioner connector shorts together both the seat belt pretensioner high and low circuits when the connector is disconnected. This will help to prevent unwanted deployment of the pretensioner during servicing. During a frontal crash of sufficient force the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will allow current to flow through the deployment loop in order to deploy the seat belt pretensioner. The SDM performs continuous diagnostic tests on the deployment loops to check for proper circuit continuity and for shorts to ground or voltage. If a malfunction is detected, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be stored in memory.
DTC B0084 Left Front/Driver Seat Position Sensor Circuit
The inflatable restraint seat position sensor (SPS) is used to determine the proximity of a front driver or passenger seat position with respect to the frontal air bag. The SPS interfaces with the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM). The state of the SPS allows the SDM to disable stage 2 of the frontal air bag for a front seat that is forward of a forward/rearward point in seat track travel. The SPS is a hall effect sensor that is mounted on the inside seat track of both the driver and passenger seats. The seat track includes a metal bracket that shunts the SPS magnetic circuit creating 2 states of seat position. The shunted state represents a rearward seat position. The non-shunted state represents a forward position. The SPS provides 2 current ranges, one range for the shunted state and a second range for a non-shunted state. These 2 states are inputs to the SDM. State 1 (shunted) being the rearward threshold and state 2 (non-shunted) being the forward threshold. When the SDM receives input from a SPS that state 1 threshold is reached (seat is rearward) the SDM will not disable stage 2 deployment, if required by the deployment sensors. When state 2 threshold is reached (seat is forward) the SDM will disable stage 2 deployment on the side the seat is forward. The SDM monitors the SPS circuit and if a fault is detected the SDM will set codes B0083 or B0084 and defaults to disabling stage 2 frontal deployment. This will only default on the side of the vehicle the sensor has a fault. Its important to understand that the SPS is secondary to the passenger presence system (PPS) and the manual instrument panel (I/P) module disable switch. If either one of these devices are in the disable mode the passenger air bag will not deploy regardless of the SPS status.

Fan belt is squeling

First thing to check is see if the belt is slipping.. .If so is belt loose ?
test by pushing down. Excess movement = loose solution = tighten.
Does it slip on engine tickover ..or when engine is revved?

My belt is squeling when i start my car and when I turn my steering wheel

It's probably time to replace the belt. As the belt gets older, it stretches and a "glaze" forms on the belt. These two things together contribute to the belt slipping. The squeal you hear is the belt actually slipping on the pulleys.

When my husband turns the car it squels and he has to fight to turn in

There is a very good chance the belt that drives the power steering pump,is slipping.When it slips,you loose the power steering effect and it makes it hard to turn.It will slip under load.i.e when turning.Check the fluid level and belt.Replace belt if need be.I think this will be the problem.The squeeling is the belt slipping.Hope this helps you

On start up loud squel from one of belt driven components my it may be a top guide wheel the sound goes away but still can be heard under hood when open

Belt squeel is usually from a belt that is to loose and the pulley is slipping against the rubber creating the "squeel".
You will need to locate the belt tensioner and tighten it until you get a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch vertical flex of the belt at the center point between the pulley's.

I have a 2004 nissan i replaced the serpentine belt and now when you start it, it squels for a second.

your belt tensioner (sp) might be loose you can also use belt dressing. the squel is from the belt sliding on a pulley trying to catch up with the speed of the pulley

I have 94 4.3 caprice it squel sound like a belt but i took the belt all the way off still squel nobody knows help

If you took all the belts off the car wouldn't start!!!! You may have taken off one belt (it appears tha't not the cause) Chances are its not the belt but an actuall pully from one of your accessories (power steering, alternator, AC compressor etc..) while the car is running (and be careful of loose clothing and hair) see if you can get your ear close the squealing and narrow it down. This will help pinpoint the problem.

Squeling noise in car when starting up and cold.

Squeling noise when cold

The right side of the car are where the belts are located. Start by checking their tension and inspecting them for cracks and/or glazing, this would be a sign of slippage. Older belts are not as pliable and will stiffen significantly after cooling, causing a squeel. While the belts are off, spin the pulleys of the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and AC compressor clutch. They should all spin freely with very little to no resistance and no noticeable bearing noise. If there is a 'grinding' feel to any of them as you spin them, it's possible that particular component is failing and causing the belts to slip.

Lod chirping, squeling noise from engine in ford taurus. Belt is

The cam shaft stabilizer for the 2003 to 2005 have been a known issue. They will intermitantly squel till they go completly out.

I took my 2003 and 2005 Turas to a professional mechanic. They where able to verify the cam shaft stabilizer was the issue since the squeling noise was coming from top right side of the engine.

The surpintine (fan, AC) belts are locted on the left side of the engine.

Once I had the cam shaft stabilizer replaced. I never had that squel again.
