Soak it in fresh water overnight, there is a high chance that salt crystals have built up around the depth sensor holes in the vipers case. Just had the exact same problem on a dive today and this has cured the issue.

If I'm reading this right you have an octopus which is a second emergency regulator for your buddy if he is in trouble. Where the original regulator hooks to the valve that goes on your tank ther should be a blank with a screw in it . This is where the octopus screws in . You will have a rubber o ring in side. Put it on the end of the threads from the octopus hose and insert it into the hole the screw once occupied.. The screw is just there to fill the blanks hole and can be thrown out.

Needs a seal rebuild kit.... They are simple to do, open the regulator up first and check that there isn't any salt or dirt inside

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.

"Wet suits and dry suits are very important when it comes to scuba diving. Your normal body temperature hovers around 98.6F (37C). If you are scuba diving in water that is cooler than your body temperature your temperature will drop. In all water, even the warmest, tropical waters, you will need thermal protection, like a wet suit, dry suit or dive skin, to keep warm and to keep safe while scuba diving. The cold affects our ability to think and our physical response time slows, which can lead to an accident. Warm tropical water will begin to feel cold after prolonged scuba diving, so it is always a good idea to wear light insulation at a minimum. When choosing thermal protection, like a wet suit or dry suit, you need to consider the following factors: Water temperature Your activity level during a dive Your body size You should always wear more insulation in colder water and lighter insulation in warmer water. Your level of activity can be a good indicator of how much insulation you should wear during a scuba dive. The more active you are during a dive the more heat your body generates and the warmer you remain throughout your dive. Larger scuba divers may need less insulation than smaller scuba divers and small, muscular scuba divers may need less insulation than larger scuba divers. It is important for you to try different amounts of insulation in differing water temperatures to determine what you need. Some scuba divers need more insulation than others, regardless of activity or size. Some scuba divers can dive in tropical water wearing only a lycra body suit, commonly known as a dive skin, while others need a 2mm wet suit. Some scuba divers can dive in cold water wearing only a 6mm wet suit, while others need the protection of a dry suit. If you are scuba diving in water below 55F (12.7C), a dry suit is the warmest type of thermal insulation available. Dive skins, wet suits and dry suits also protect your skin from cuts, scrapes, abrasions and stings which can occur while you are scuba diving. A simple brush against specific forms of coral and fish can cause painful irritations and burns on bare skin, but may not be noticeable or even occur, if your skin is protected."

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

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.

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.

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
