Start with checking battery cables. When it doesn't start, will the headlights turn on? If not suspect a battery cable/connection issue. If the headlights turn on and nothing happens, possible a starter motor problem

You don't have daytime running lights but you do have automatic light control. The design engineers reasoned that you would not need fog lights unless you were running with headlights on under foggy conditions so these functions are controlled by logic and can't be separated without rewiring

Headlights, a/c, radio will not turn on

Sounds major.
All three are different circuits and the headlights don't go thru the ignition switch.
I'd start with tracing the headlight circuit.

Headlamps stay on 5 minutes or more when car is turned off and locked. Headlamp switch doesn't seem to turn them on or off.

you don`t say but if your car has a delay timer for the headlights then this could be the problem,it is built part of the headlight switch and to repair you replace the headlight switch itself with the same switch.some of these cars also had an daylight sensor in the dash that would detect how much daylight there is and when it gets dark enough it automaticaly turns on the headlights.this system was first installed on the cadillac cars then filtered down to other models in the gm line.its someplace to start.

How do you know when your starter on your car is about to give out? it wont turn left me stranded once again!

First make sure the battery in in good confition and fully charged. Turn on the headlights and have someone attempt to start the car whilst you observe the headlights. If they go dim, the starter could be poling and drawing too much current. If you can, feel the starter motor, it should not be hot unless you have tried many times to start. If quite hot, headlights are dim and engine wont crank over, recheck the battery and if ok, overhaul the starter motor.
