As far as draining the battery, pull the door lock circuit breaker till you can fix the issue. When you drive the vehicle, you can plug it back in. If your sure the door locks are the problem? In my database for body info, if no screws then there is a keeper, with a keeper you use a flat bladed tool under the edge, slide it along till you find a keeper, then release it. I don't like to fool with keepers, I usually break something. Just my opinion.

Make sure the seal from the old filter is not still stuck on the housing. If it is it will leak for sure. I always smear some oil on the new filter seal before putting it on. I also fill the new filter with oil.

Wiper arms are fitted to a tapered and splined shaft and they can become very tight on the shaft even without the problems of poor maintenance - when servicing a vehicle I always loosen the wiper arm retaining nuts and apply a small amount of chain lube and retighten. Subsequent removal becomes a little easier and the chance of snapping a wiper spindle much reduced.

These days few wiper arms can be removed without using a small gear puller that is sold by tool outlets for the purpose of removing most wiper arms. Recently a colleague needed to manufacture a "special" for a particular car because mine wouldn't fit.

Rear wipers receive no maintenance at all generally and being more exposed to the weather, salt, road dirt, corrosion can be a big factor when removing the arm from the spindle. This is especially so when the rear wiper arm is plastic with a moulded-in ally hub. I have in the past had to resort to carefully cutting and grinding away the arm in order not to risk the spindle or the glass.

I suggest you try a wiper arm puller and a little gentle heat and if that doesn't seem to be working then cutting, grinding or drilling would be the best solution, after protecting the glass with lots of forgiving material...

I had a Camaro that did the same thing. Mine was a bad security module in the steering column. It reads the chip in the key. It looks for the chip just after the engine starts.

Could be the fuel pump as they use the fuel as a lubricant. When run dry this can cause wear to the impeller of the pump.
I would check the fuel pressure in the fuel rail.

It might be your fuel pump not getting fuel to throttle body. Disconnect fuel line to throttle housing get someone to turn car over and see if fuel is getting pumped up. If not the pump could be faulty or fuel filter blocked. Also check to see if you car has a fuel cut of reset button it could just need a reset.
