How to reset a ECM for a 2002 chevy prizm
If you have a scan tool reset KAM (keep alive memory) without a scan tool, disconnect the negative battery terminal for 30 seconds. I would recommend not doing this procedure though. If you have a check engine light that you recently repaired, the computer is smart enough to eventually turn the check engine light off on its own. You can accomplish this by driving the vehicle twice over the course of about 20 miles.

Overheating problem, what is the most probable cause?
You need to stop using it immediately before you
cause some damage or more than you may already have
That is just common sense. It should not overheat or
be any different than it was in the past without problem
The car has to be checked over/diagnosed,tested,etc for
various issues to resolve
Borrow or Rent a car until resolved
No way to guess at the problem
You should have some type of codes avail even
if the check light isn't on,you need professional help
to get a start on resolving
The timing belt maybe worn & jumped or the head gasket
Over heating isn't usually a cheap repair unless the thermostat
sticks partially closed
The RPM moves around the car is 11 years old,so it may just
need a though going over
Timing Belt,O2 Sensors,Exhaust Converter,Spark Plugs
If you depend on a repair shop to do things & don't
have the knowledge to request work done throughout
the year,then you run into a lack of proactive preventative
maintenance situation. Most things are simple looking
back, once resolved

Parking lights not working have power at the fuse also door buzzer not working when lights are on
You say there is power at the fuse. Is there power leaving the fuse is the important question?
I would check the lights first by removing the fuse(s) and then feeding a temporary live to one side parking light and then the other when all the lights should have made a brief appearance without excessive sparking. Parking lights are often split into left and right circuits with two fuses and the number plate lights fed from one side and the dash lights from the other.
Having verified the fuse is ok and power is leaving the the fusebox down the right wire(s) and that all the lights can be illuminated successfully by backfeeding it is clear there is a break in the harness somewhere or perhaps a displaced connection or something between the fusebox and the place where the parking light feed(s) split into two or four as applicable..
You have supplied insufficient information for me to make a closer guess. Such problem seeking really needs a certain familiarity with the circuitry.

Bypass power steering
Attempting to drive a car designed for power steering without the pump will increase the effort at the wheel so you may not be able to steer it.
Go to a junkyard and buy a used pump, cost you less.
