my car say reduce egine power the battery keeps dying and the streeing wheel locks up

I had the starter replaced in August 2016. Shortly after that I noticed a serious antifreeze leak that was caused by a bad radiator cap spring which was also replaced. Shortly after that, different instrument panel lights were coming on. Firs it was the check oil light, next was the service airbag light, then it was the battery light, and now the only lights that come on and stay on is the check engine and traction control light. When they are both on, the car shifts extremely hard. Sometimes I can start the car and it doesn't come on and drives normally. Other times, it decides to come on and stay on. The check oil light comes on and stays on for a little while and the goes off and does this multiple times while driving. What would cause the check engine and traction control light to stay on and cause hard shifting?

And it still won't start

My vehicle is not working and needs a new engine. Is it worth getting a rebuilt put in or should I just get a new car and get rid of the broken vehicle?

I have to manually pick up the trunk door. Its very heavy and don't know what made it break.

Noise comes and goes and I have never placed anything on the dashboard. Nothing there is rattling.

Basically, car has been in and our of the shop for 6 long months. From YOUNG CHEVROLET, it went to a buddy of mines shop. He had it two months for nothing. Then to JON WATSON CHEVROLET. Anyway, this car is showing some slavish l electrical issues. How do I reset the system,

It was driving normal is it possible it could be antilock system? They said diagnostic code said starter but they put new starter in and took it back out said it had no compression and put my starter i had in it when i took it there

my airbag light is on the mechanic said it needs a sensor module. airbags might not deploy but I just read that they could cause death from metal fragments

I cranked it up and I heard a pop. Then my gear shift selector wouldn't work. Then the car wouldn't turn over. Whaourt is that? It happened for the first time. Why is it locked up?

while in motion. vires with your speed.

The seat belt light comes on when starting the car and stays on, a tone sounds for short time and a message shows up on the information screen until cleared. That is UNLESS someone is sitting in the passenger seat. Then all appears correct. I asked a mechanic and he suggested I put a heavy enough weight on the seat to stop the light/sound/message. Should I be concerned?

I noticed one morning a rattling in my car. I made one stop and it did not start. I got it to the mechanic and he stated that it was low on oil but it started again but it is not picking up speed .
