Most likely a broken wire or plug under the seat, get a flashlight and have a look, the heavy duty wires will be the heater the others the airbag/seatbelt sensors. You might find a bendy. weak section where the copper has flexed and parted.

The idle control valve is at the right handside and just under the intake manifold.

Stand at the drivers side of your engine bay and look at at the throttle body. The ICV is directly under it and to the right underneath the manifold. It has a vacuum line connected to the left side and a connector on the right. It may be easier to get to if unscrew the hoseclamp to the throttle body and the plug on the side of the afm, as well as the clips from the air box There are 2 hoses going to the boot on the bottom, they just pull out, one of them goes directly to the IAC. The IAC itself should just slide out of its holder. The IAC valve looks like this rixsfixes_0.jpg
Also there is a good video on Youtube showing how to get at the IAC on an E46. The location on your engine is much the same.

No heat or a/c

From what your saying, it works in a sense, but very little air is blowing out. I had this issue with my '96 328i where the climate control was only running the fans at a low speed no matter what setting I put it on. The resolution to my problem was replacing the final stage unit for the climate control and now my heat and a/c work beautifully and the fan goes from low to high without problems. If you don't have climate control but the manual dials for the heat and a/c, then you may need to change the blower resistor pack. For either unit, it can be located in several places and you'll have to do some searching to find it good. If the convertible is any similar to the 4dr sedan I have, it should be located under the dash panel on the drivers side at the rear of the console. Hopefully this link may help you out.
