Question Answered: 

There are 2 separate switches, I believe, it seems to me that it should be a fuse that has blown! Don't think both switches have failed... TEST fuses with a test light to be SURE that's not the problem... Test ALL fuses...Especially the high amp fuses!! It's easy to miss one!!... Also test for battery voltage at the blower resistor and blower motor with key on and blower on high. Possibly a ground issue also...

Question Answered: 

First need to know.... Did you change the actual ignition 'electrical' switch down on the column under dash... OR ... The ignition lock cylinder, with new keys, up at the steering wheel?? There is a big difference!! In other words... Is this a new key??

95% of the time it's the plug wires breaking down!! Scanner with misfire data and an ohm meter will find this problem!!!!

Question Answered: 

Common problem on the 2.2 with that mileage!! Camshaft, crankshaft and oil pump seals must be replaced... Might as well do the timing belt and water pump while that's being done... All of this can be purchased as a kit that will save a bit of money. I've done many of them!!! Can't give you a price... Call around for pricing in your zip code.. This engine is very capable of going 500k ... if treated 'half way' descent - That's NO BS!!!!

Question Answered: 

Change BOTH !!! Asking for trouble if you don't... There is no primary, they both work together..(*parallel*)....IN FACT, the old battery will drain the new battery down to its current state of charge!!... Replace them both with 'matching' top quality batteries!!!! Test charging system.... Problem solved!
