Sounds like it might be a cold vacuum leak. May need to get the engine smoke tested to confirm where.

Sounds like the key and tumbler went bad (the tumbler is the thing the key goes into). It takes special tools to replace it because the air bag assembly and the steering wheel needs to come out to get to it.

Front of the engine. There is a plastic "thing" with 5 hoses attached to it. You will see a part of it that is bolted to the rest. It's in there. Sorry can't put pictures up.

You will need a shop with the proper scanner to get into the transmission side of the system. P0700 is just telling someone with a basic code reader that there is a code/problem with the transmission.

I'm assuming ( i hate to assume) that this is all from the drivers door. Open a different door and see if the light will come on. If it does the problem is most likely inside the drivers door. It will need to come apart and diagnosed. Sorry, no silver bullet fixes.

Maintenance required lights are an oil change light (as long as it's yellow). The shop may have just forgot to reset it. It happens. Take it back and have them double check it or... Reset the system by the following procedure: Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. Dashes will bling and slowly count down off the odometer display. Wait until the odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off. Now you can release the trip meter reset knob. If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

A couple of ideas - If the trip reset button is close the the speedometer needle sometimes you can bend a paper clip CAREFULLY slide it in the hole and flip the needle back around. Be careful not to scratch the face of the instrument panel. - Use a strong magnet and a soft cloth. Put the cloth on the magnet and hold it up to the panel by the needle and move it around trying to get it to move that way. Sometimes it works sometime it don't. - Go to a shop and have them do an gauge sweep test with there scanner. Only other thing to do is remove the cluster take the clear lens off and move the needle by hand.

Check all connections at the battery and starter. Make sure they are in good shape, clean, and tight. Remember that at the point of no crank the starter is hot so if it was tested out of the vehicle at that point it was cool and may test fine. What will really need to happen to diagnose it properly is to drive it, let it sit so it won't crank and test for battery voltage at the small wire at the starter. If you have voltage (12+) when you turn the key to the crank position then it's most likely a starter. If you don't have voltage then it could be a relay, neutral safety switch, PCM, antitheft system or other issues. At that point a good shop will be advised so you're not guessing and spending money where it's not needed.
