Start with a code scan. Then do a oil filter and oil change. Then check for fuses for the windows and locks.

What is it when i start or idle my car it smokes like crazy? Other problem is that plastic bottle coming from the radiator must i fill up every 2nd day but radiator still full.

If you are adding coolant every 2 days and the car smokes when you start it I would suspect you have a bad head gasket. A compression test would confirm that. Hope this helps.

sounds like you may need to replace the idle speed control motor(actual sensor)its not reading the signal from the ecu properly hope this helps you by the way this sensor is self adjusting if that doesent solve your problem then have your timing checked to make sure your still in time.
