Morning Charlie,

If it were me, I would check the wires coming & going to & from engine. Maybe something is crossed. That's what it sounds like, anyways.

Most likely your blend door. The door behind your dash that controls weather your A/c or your heater is working. This is assuming you still have a/c. Even if your car doesn't have a/c you will still have blend door so that you can stop heat from coming into car in summer.

No dash lights, power locks don't work, fuel gadge doesn't work, radio doesn't work.

all these circuits share some common fuses, check fuse #6 ( 10 amp ), fuse # 11 ( 15 amp ) & fuse #12 ( 10 amp ) all in the inside fuse box at the left end of the dash.....good luck

Got a problem with the cars heater .i've changed the thermostat flushed out system.some times it acts like it wants to work but most of the time it dont get warm. thought it might be the heater core but...

Sometimes the heater core get stopped up, especially if someone used stop leak in the cooling system. If the heater core stops up then you wont hardly get any heat. There are possibility's to like if the air doors and actuators under the dash, or the heater controls themselves act up. I would pull the two heater core hoses off under the hood and see if water will flow through the heater core. A water hose is good to use for this. If it is stopped up you wont get much flow. If being stopped up turns up to be your problem, then the heater core will have to be replaced to make the heater work like it should.

All dashboard/ center console lights out.

Test the dash first. Put key in hold down trip reset botton. Turn the key to on but don't start. Release the trip botton. Should turn on all dash lights & check for codes in the odometer. If getting codes reply back.
