Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, please do replace the battery connectors. If the battery connectors are worn out they tend to loose. If they are loose there will be no electric current return. One good reason why it goes flat right away.

Another thing is that it can be a loose battery cable to the ground. Have it secured and replace if necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

do a compression test first, that will give you an idea if the engine is still good. it should be between 185 to 213 psi with a maximum difference of 28.4 psi under or over. this sounds like the compression is in the pan and not in the cylinders.

inlet air temp for the engine is located inside the MAF
the "air temp", like the one for the outside temp that is displayed on the dash is located in front of the condenser

Seat belts cannot be fixed for safety reasons. If there's nothing obvious blocking the action of the belt then the only fix is to replace it entirely. If you get a replacement from the scrapyard then do not take it from one which has suffered impact damage.
