If you mean the bottom bolt which is holding the caliper in place, and its rounded off really bad, first soak it and the area where it threads into with a good penetrating oil (WD-40, Liquid wrench), let it sit for about 2 hours, apply more oil, then clean off the head and tap it with a metal hammer several times to loosed it up. Then clamp on the biggest vise-grip wrench you can find as tight as it will go. Then remove the bolt with the vise grip. This has always worked with me.

One of the coil packs or the ignition module is probably bad. Test for spark when cold. If no spark on any coils suspect the ignition module or crank position sensor. If spark is gone on only one coil check the plugs and wires to that coil pack. If theplugs and wires are ok then replace thge coil pack. Don't forget the obvious load test the battery and clean the battery connections. If the check engine light is on run any diagnostic codes and repair

My standard for most of these type of questions is that you should purchse a haynes or chiltons manuel for your vehicle. I will have instructions and diagrams as well as tips to help you do your job, I bought mine on ebay for 17.50.

There isn't an overdrive relay. There is an overdrive solenoid. It takes about four hours to replace. You better have manuals and patience to do it. otherwise you will mess up the transmission worse than it is already..I really don't recommend a nice to do it. When you take it apart, there are parts that fall out. You lose them or don't get them back in place, a transmission rebuild ,plus extra parts are in the works for you.

Sounds like one of two things
one turn on your car wait for two minutes than check your teams fluid level if low than add one or two quarts check under vehicle for any leaks (careful car will be hot.
Second if all that it's good than u have bad solenoids or burn clutches good luck.

Im pretty sure I know what is wrong. This is pretty common in GM cars. Your security system has failed, meaning that you will still have power to the car but it will not start. Happened to me. I found this site they make a bypass module. I had a good experience with them and Installed it myself . Hope this helps ya.

The ignition switches are made to be replaced. You should not have to cut or splice anything, those parts would stay in the vehicle and attach to the ignition switch.

Why would you expect to turn it off ?

We have had the dash malfunction lights
on vehicles since 1981,some 35 years now

That seems long enough to learn about vehicles

If any light is on after the motor is running, you have a
system fault, that has to be found & repaired

How exactly in your mind, would just turning off a dash light,
substitute for an actual required repair?

May be CV-joint going. Have a look at boot for hole that dirt may have been getting in damaged it. Never hurts to inspect brakes while wheel is off.

Find the wire at the bottom of the steering column that comes down from the horn button, or locate the wire at the horn relay.. Cut this wire and splice it to a wire that goes to one side of a push button switch. Connect the other side of the switch to the metal chassis of the car, which is ground. A metal part of the dashboard frame will usually work.Then when you press the button, it will activate the relay and sound the horn.

At a shop in the U.S. You can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1,000 depending on the labor rates in your area.

Not sure I follow your question, but you can change the lock as long as you get a key blank that matches the chip in the old key.
The lock cylinder only holds the sensor for the chip in the key.

loose connection, remove front of steering wheel and check underneath. theres a copper ring, that when you press the horn it should make contact with another copper bit . or you need a new horn (where the sound actually comes out), or the 2 wires that go into the actual horn have come loose. you can find the actual horn usually by looking under the front of the car.
