If one of the mounts for the headrest has a push button you push to adjust it up or down, then the other mount will have a pinhole on the inner side. It is big enough to insert a small Allen wrench. Push it inwards to release that latch and work the headrest upwards, pressing both latches as you go.

The proper name for it is the 'Engine Malfunction Light'.

The steering becomes hard because the engine drives the steering pump, which is part of the power assisted steering system.

The battery light came on because the engine was not running so the battery wasn't charging.

You need to connect the car to an OBD11 diagnostics computer. That will give you a code of what is wrong and from that, what is needed to fix the issue. Probably a sensor somewhere. Garages will normally read the codes for free in the hope of getting the work.

I would think the CAT. they tend to clog and make a rattling sound when driving .Seeing you say you did fuel lines witch is another issue with the vehicle in a snowy part of the country they rust out but your fuel pump must be working because who ever replaced the line would have known if the pump was bad they last 10 years then you have to up grade to the new pumps I'm not going to get in to that now.The only other thing it could be is the fuel regulator in witch case just replace all of the injectors and the regulator comes as a unit .But I think its more then likely the CAT is clogged .

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If you have the spider fuel system, that system is known for problems. I'd probably use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Could be other issues? Intermittent can be a pain to track down.

Your thermostat is sticking or your radiator or heater core is blocked up. If you keep running it like this you will blow the head gasket or worse (warp the heads or block.) if it's not already the case.

For blower motor, check these fuses. As you can see two fuse go hot with the key on, one is hot all the time. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite and voltage on fuse circuit.
