Sounds like you might need an ignition switch. When you turn that switch it unlocks the wheel and then starts the car. If it doesnt want to turn smoothly that might be your problem. As far as your a/c, you could be low on freon. You can get a can with hose and attachment at the parts store for $40 to $50 range. the directions are easy to follow that are on the can.
