Hi Pearl, I'm a Wilson too (and oddly enough, grandmother's maiden name was Pearl...) Recently replaced exhaust maniforld on driver's side 2000 Durango, 4.7, as well as driver's side cv joint and wheel bearing. Had to disconnect the intermediate steering link to remove the manifold.
JA: How many miles are on the car? How has your mileage been lately?
Customer: All work done with no issue, however, now I don't have cruise control
and air bag light is on. Horn works. Speedo works. Fuses are good for airbags. I know people think clockspring, but thinking something got disconnected during the repair. 167,000 k
JA: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: mileage improved 3.5 per gallon highway with exhaust manifold repair, and another 1.5 with wheel bearing. No slop in bearing but once off, it sounded like broken glass in the roller bearings and rotor was very hot. I'm presuming lots of drag. Anyway, car's running better than ever save for the cc and air bag fault.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I guess the question is could I have disconnected anything during the repair that would have effected cc and airbag light. I'm hesitant to jump to clockspring thinking I've done something during the repair.
