This when i try using my key to open or lock the car, i hear a pecking sound but nothing happens. I also notice that when i put the key into the ignition, light does not show as it was before the fuse box change.

Can a exhaust manifold leak affect the way the truck heats such as inside the cab. For example I could let my truck sit and it would be warm, but it would blow cold. However if I’m driving it it will heat up. As soon as I’m at a stop sign.. etc it’s starts to get colder. Could the exhaust leak be the cause..?something to do with compression idk?
I always have a rattle from the front of the boot when I close a door. I have removed the two "flappers" on the front bulkhead of the boot to no avail.

I used head gasket sealant to try to fix a head gasket. Upon taking it to the shop I was told I had used too much and had clogged the engine. They suggested I replace the engine rather than just the head gasket. I could only afford head gasket and water pump, so those were replaced and the cooling system flushed. The car was returned to me and the first day it overheated going up the mountainous road to my home. I replaced the radiator and the shop said I blew the brand new gasket that had less than 75 miles. Can a brand new head gasket blow that easily, and is the shop responsible for replacing it if it did blow a second time?
I have put a new blower motor in and new resistor but yet 2 days later it burned up again. I have replaced the resistor and wiring harness about 6 times in the past year?
