Your engine has an electronic throttle body. They don't use an idle air control valve. They control idle by cracking open the throttle plate electronically. If you have idle problems, chances are you've got carbon buildup around the throttle plate. Here's how to clean it. http://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/clean-an-electronic-throttle-body

the only way to turn off the traction control is to remove the fuse for it in your fuse panel. if the light is on that is usually a sign that you have a bad abs wheel speed sensor. and it just needs replaced. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX0FsAzuuic

Check the fuse block for a blown fuse. There may be a solenoid inside the transmission that finally gave up. Look for poor electrical connections on the wire harness at the transmission and finally, the transmission control module may have failed.

No recall . Reduced engine power is caused by a problem with the electronic throttle control . Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would point you in a diagnostic direction . Viewing videos on how the system works an testing would help .

This repair is tedious. You will find the thermostat housing located directly below the throttle body. It is tightly set between the engine block and exhaust crossover pipe. There are two bolts holding the housing in place. The lower housing bolt is the hardest one to remove so remove that one first. Any questions please write back. Good Luck.

Michael, this job requires special tools. You need to recover the refrigerant. But your big issue will be removing all of the moisture from the system, after the compressor surgery.
System oil is another major concern. As per directions, measure that you remove from the compressor. Adjust accordingly. Meaning for example, (Random values, check specs for your system) if you were to have 4 oz of oil in the compressor, but you find only 3 oz (measured!), you are not down 1 oz. The entire system is 25% low on oil. Adjust accordingly. No biggie, but if you are not aware of these things, you will introduce moisture into your system, which will react negatively with the metal parts of the system, causing costly damage.
Always replace the receiver/dryer when you open an A/C system.
(it has oil in it, too...)
Really, dollars and cents, this job might want to be done by a trained professional.

Discharge of refrigerant is ******* most everywhere.

Sounds like you've got two different problems, because the brake lights and turn signals are on different circuits.
1. Brake lights. These should work whether the engine is on or off. Check fuse box for a blown fuse. If OK, check for voltage at one of the lights with the brake pedal depressed. If no voltage, brake light switch under dash probably bad. Fairly easy replacement.
2. Flashers/turn signals. The flashers should work with the engine on or off. If they don't, might be a bad fuse. If that doesn't fix it, might be a problem with the wiring connected to the turn signal switch, or the switch itself.
