There are many kind of steel: for long runs production, a durable mold is required, the tool steel must be selected properly; for small volume production, steel selection can be as economic as possible as long as it meet the requirement of production demands.
How to choose the injection mold steel? Important steel properties include:
Ease of machining
Dimensional stability after heat treatment
Wear resistance
Surface finish
Corrosion resistance

Mold steel we selected frequently are 1.2344, 1.2343, 1.2312, 1.1730, H13, S136, 2083, etc. Normally we categorized them as pre-harden steel or harden steel. Pre-harden steel can be machined and used directly after purchase, harden steel required heat treatment during process, the machining take longer time, injection mold made by harden steel usually have long service life.

Corrosion resistant hardened steels should be selected when conventional flame retardants are used. In the case of halogen free flame retardant DSM thermoplastics, standard steel types can be selected. Beryllium copper inserts may be used for improved cooling near hot spots. High heat conductivity is also required for gate drops in hot runner molds. Standardization of mold parts is growing, not only for ejector pins, leader pins and bushings, but also for mold plates and even complete mold bases. These standard mold bases require only machining of the cores, cavities and cooling channels and fitting of an ejection system. Advantages are:

OK, It means you have a light bulb out.
Sadly, it doesn't tell you which one though. It maybe a tail, turn, brake, backup, or headlight.
You'll need someone to look around as you run through the lights in the car.

The starter is located on the passenger side where the engine mates with the transmission. It's held on by two bolts and there are wire harness that need to be disconnected and are live so you need to disconnect the battery ground first. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted if you need instructions to removing the starter or you can log on to Auto Zone and register free of charge and you can get a print out on how to get the job done with common tools. Be safe friend.

I just got the perfect answer to this yesterday. It's a $5 fix! Check your brake lights. If any of them are out, it will make the cruise control not function. Turns out all 4 of the 3rd set of brake lights were out. We replaced the 4 of them and the cruise control immediately became functional again. I got this tip from a gentleman in the service department at a local Chevy dealer.
