Question Answered: 

Considering the work done it could be a lot of things. Check basics with a scan tool , confirm fuel pressure and spark as well. Did you replace the ECM ? If so the immobilizer will need attention. I would double check the wiring , especially the ground connections.

the strut bearings can "bind" , the steering rack can loosen at it's mountings ..... open the hood , have someone turn the steering wheel as you describe and take a careful look before going any further.

The radio display is normal. After reconnecting the radio to power the security code needs to be entered via the radio panel , see your owners manual. As far as not starting that is a differnt problem. Did it run OK before replacing the batterry? I would rescan the vehicle and deal with any engine related faults. As a minimum perform a Throttle Adaption" via an appropriate scan tool..........

That price may well include the door latch. Perhaps they are considering the possibility a binding/stiff latch caused the cable to break.

Question Answered: 

Brake wear is strongly influenced by your driving habits , but are basically a wear item like tires. Window regulators are a known issue with these cars but the repair kits include upgraded components. As far as electrical issues basics need to be checked first , i.e. ground connections , charging system and battery etc. Incorrect diagnosis can cause more problems than you fix......

Question Answered: 

Sometimes something as simple as a poor ground connection at the area under the battery can cause seemingly constant or bizarre problems. If you are so inclined clean and secure every connection particularly ground connections ( usually solid brown color wires ) you can get at under the hood , particularly at and under the battery. I have resolved many ongoing stories like yours this way. An additional thought would be to make sure any accessible electrical connectors are clean and tight !

Question Answered: 

If you have access to a scan tool check for fault codes in the ABS. You may well retrieve codes relating to "no communication with instrument cluster". This is very commonly due to problems in the ABS control module. Additionally the scan tool may not communicate with other vehicle systems unless you unplug the ABS module , or won't communicate with ABS at all. In either case the ABS control module is probably defective. A new or rebuilt ABS module is called for. This is a very common failure.
