Took the car to the dealership and they tested the relay but that wasnt the problem. In order to get the car started i have to turn the ignition key all the way on and manually stick another key in the relay to start it. the dealership was totally lost, and said it might be electrical but wanted to charge $243.00 just for a diagnostic, didnt include repair. Please help anyone who might have a clue what this problem could be.

My brake light warning light is coming on after hitting the brakes. I replaced the brake light switch completely, but it still comes on indicating something wrong with the rear lights. All the light bulbs are replaced, everything is working but still the brake warning light comes on and will not go out. Secondly, my check engine light is on intermediate. Most of the time it's on, occasionally it is off for about 2 day's then comes back on. My car is a OBD 1 so I tested the codes and code 71 comes up, meaning the EGR system, however, it just passed smog? so the EGR valve is working. Now, there are 2 wires connected to the EGR valve with a electrical connector, I was told that that is a oxygen sensor, could that be the problem, because I did cleaned out the EGR valve from all the carbon buildup. What could it be?

I posted this question a few days ago about my heater problems. Either I did not explain exactly what is going on, because the answer to my question was more related to my A/C not working, then to my heater problem. The A/C works fine, I put in a new receiver drier, a new compressor, had the system flushed, and finally vacuumed and recharged by a professional, and it works great. The real problem I have is the heater. It keeps blowing hot air, even with the system turned off? Also, if I want heat, now I have turn up the temperature to over 80F otherwise I will have no warm air at all. So in short, turning of the heater will still gives me warm air, turning it on I need to set it to over 80F to get hot air, anything lower results in cold air. The cutting out of the A/C only happens when the outside temperature is over 80F and I take off at a traffic light after coming to a full stop. I can turn of the A/C, then 5 seconds later I turn it back on, and it's nice and cold again. My thoughts where, considering that warm air is blowing in the system while the A/C is running as well, makes the A/C overheat and cuts out. So, the real problem is not the A/C, although it could be related, but it's the heater.
