Hi everyone. I will need the replies in female language. (understandable)!!
Here we go .
2000 2.0l gas 5 speed
First when i bought it from craigslist the issues:
Windows dont go down
Heater doesnt blow hot air.
Ac clutch engages for Ac.
Fans otherwise do not come on when car needs to cool down.
Ac stopped working. Not engaging . ( not the fuse)
Drip coming in passenger floorboard.
Without windows or air . well i decided to fix the heater core.

Okay got a new heater core. Replaced it. No drip.
Now. My car starts and i go to turn it off and pull the keys completly out. Radio turns off but instrument lights stay on along with the car running. Take off battery cable stays running . take off both battery cables no keys. Still running. Had to pull a fuse inside the car for it to shut off.
What the F*€%. Can someone help me PLEASE

New key ignition switch& syllinoid (spelling) just a thought, though removing key not actually turning off.
Windows prob need new regulator tracks/mechanisms, junkyards finds might be acceptable (or might have same issues as yours). Not always necessary to replace whole thing, the retaining mounts deteriorate either rubber or plastic, but then are still used and wire unspools and then f’ed (can be rerouted , but not recommended. Can also by new ones various stages/parts to fix this issue.
There are various threads addressing a/c issues in this site , as well. from blend door holes, actuators, fuses, fans connection or relays blah blah 20 year old car. Good luck.
