It sounds like your ignition switch, $40.00 and about ten min labor. You can watch the how to video on you tube. You can test the SWITCH by fuse panel. If the swicth is bad you will find dead fuses are not blown when the key is on.

It sounds like you have an air bubble in the heater core. Try parking front upward on the steepest hill you can find, and run the engine hot, with the heater control on full, for about 5 min. That may shift the bubble out.

Get a new battery. The battery seems to be too drained of power. It will still light the dash but does not have enough power to turn the starter.Of course, before buying the battery, have it tested. Probably has a dead cell.

On the air conditioner, it seems you may have the condenser drain hose pulled out of the dash hole that leads to the outside and the water that condenses goes into the car instead of to the street. Of course, it also could be that the plastic housing is cracked and the water leaks out through that.
