Has the fuel pressure been checked when it fails to start? If not that needs to be done, I suspect the fuel pump is defective.

The IS200 is a popular car with car enthusiasts, there will be a forum for this car. The problem is most probably either a fuse or a relay of which a car has many. These simply unplug and can be replaced with a matching one. Fuses are colour coded and transparent. You can find one of the fuse boxes and pull each fuse and look at it in turn. If you find a blown one simply plug in a good one of the same colour.

Hopefully you find the fuse and replace it. However the cause of the blown fuse my still be there and the fuse will just blow again. At least if you know this much then the garage can't get the better of you.

Most straps are universal. But if you want an exact replacement just seach for your local US Divers retail store.

it depends on the quality of the mask and it depends on how you stored it (if you leaved it at sunlight, if you washed it thoroughly after using it in the sea...)
i have a mid quality mask Mares mask, i have been using about 20 times for snorkeling, then i used it to take diving certifications in pool, then i used it for about other 20 dives in the sea... i always stored it in a dark bag (the mask is now about 8 years old)
you can check if you mask is still in good shape, and the silicone has not worn out, in this simple way: just put the mask on your face without straps.. remove all the air inside the mask by inhaling with your nose.. then look at your feet (keep inhaling): if the mask remains on your face you can keep using it

the law of buoyancy is the principle that describes why some objects float over water and some others sink: when you put something in water, it receives an upword force equal to the weight of the water it displaces.
this is important in diving in many ways.. and in particular, in diving, you always want to have a neutral buoyancy: this means that if you are standing still in water and you have a neutral buyoancy, you don't sink nor come back to surface

you have a neutral buoyancy if you "displace" always the correct volume of water.. in other words, you always need to occupy about the same volume: if you go in deep water, the water pressure will "reduce" your volume, so to mantain a neutral buoyancy you have to inflate air in your buoyancy compensator jacket to expand its volume.
otherway, if you're coming back to surface, pressure reduces and your body occupies more volume, so you have to deflate your jacket.

Better get a professional to look at it. you could kill yourself or some one else if you do it yourself. If I gave you an answer what I thought and some one died because of poison gas then I could be held responsible as well as you.

The UPS has a stated output, that does not change. It is most likely 115vAC. If the UPS does not have enough charge, it will warn you. If you are asking if you can connect your solar direct, no, do not! The UPS is not a charge controller or regulator which is what I think you are asking. Summary: Solar to UPS to appliance is ok. If you exceed the amperage of the UPS, again, an alarm will sound or not work at all. for instance, you will not power a microwave this way.

If it is an OE, original equipment, alarm it would be necessary to discover exactly how the alarm is armed and how it is supposed to be disarmed. The vehicle handbook might help.

Generally such systems will sound the alarm if the car is unlocked with a key if the remote or plip has been used to lock it.

Aftermarket alarms are notoriously unreliable and short-lived unless expensive and are usually badly fitted. Often the best thing is to remove them and recycle them.

A local auto locksmith might be helpful.

Most likely your problem is being caused by a sticky fuel injector. When a fuel injector sticks open it constantly sprays fuel into the combustion chamber even when there is no spark being supplied to that cylinder. Therefor all that fuel gets expelled from the combustion chamber through the exhaust. The white colored smoke is the raw fuel burning in the exhaust pipe. The white smoke may also be caused by a blown head gasket(which can be caused by a stuck injector).
