I want to replace my AC compressor belt
Just like your main serpentine belt, there is a tensioner for the ac belt as well. It may be easier to do it from under the vehicle. The main serpentine belt needs to be removed so you can have access to take the ac serpentine belt off. our vehicle should also have a diagram under the hood as to how the serpentine belt system is run. If you replaced the main serpentine belt, the ac should be pretty straightforward as well.

Removal of headlight assembly to change headlight
I am not familiar with the model but the vehicle handbook usually contains instructions and diagrams on bulb replacement. If stuff has to be removed to change the bulb the book will usually tell you to take the car to your nearest dealer.
Many headlamp bulbs need a strong light, a mirror and a great deal of patience...

Battery replacement inside key
Check when you put it in the ignition that the key is in fully whilst you drive.
The little silver nob on the key needs to make connection with the circle chrome around the ignition.
This is how it charges and the door lock/unlock uses a bit of power hence why it probably not working but works with every other purpose.

2001 Jetta TDI Transmission not shifting
the transmission works properly after restarting so mechanically the transmission is fine
Run the fault codes to determine the problem area ( TR, TCM, VSS ,solenoids and servos) check for wiring harness problems and water in the connections

code p 0496 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system---high purge flow===causes ---wiring --EVAP valve---mechanical fault
code p 0171system too lean bank 1===causes --intake / exhaust leak---AIr system---MAF/VAF sensor--fuel pressure too low/---pump--injectors ---Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)
with the first code it could be a faulty vent valve or solenoid
with the second code , it is probably a faulty HO2S unit ( the one in the exhaust manifold before the cat converter)

No power to one headlight, where is the fuse? 1990 wrangler
Are these your wire colors for headlamps? In the diagram, the top wires are voltage, the bottom wire is ground, check both. There is no fuse for headlamps. There is internal circuit breaker in headlamp switch. The exterior lamps not including headlamps are fuse protected.
Maybe a problem with bulb or wiring circuit. The voltage for hi beams on both sides, come from the same place. Lo beams, the samething.

Air Bag light comes on soon as Blazer is shifted to any gear.
OBDII scanners for the home DIY guy only scan powertrain codes ... and not body codes .... which is where the airbag code(s) would go. Scanners that do both are expensive. I would call a local auto parts place that advertises that they will scan for free ... but ask them if their scanner can read body codes related to the air bag. If they say yes ... I would take it to them and to narrow down your troubleshooting ... since the airbag light can go on for a bunch of reasons and you do not want to just throw parts at it.
Good luck with your troubleshooting!
