If you are assembling the engine you must have a shop manual to provide torque values, etc. I expect it has the timing procedure. If you don't have one, I highly recommend you buy one because if you mess up the cam timing you will have wasted much work and $.

Check the heater valves in the engine compartment. This is a solenoid valve that allows the hot coolant to circulate through the heater core. Hope you have not used radiator stop leak or anything like that since that can plug the heater core sometimes

The brake light switch is located at the top of the brake pedal, and the trunk light switch is probably at or near the trunk lock.

If the oil is the correct viscosity and you added the correct amount, suspect the oil filter. If you continue to have trouble or just want to say hi leave a testimonial, I hope this helps, take care.

They are usually near the fan in the fan housing under the bottom right of the dashboard. (Sometimes they are put in the ductwork near the center of the dashboard.) Just disconnect the wiring connector, and remove the blend door motor/actuator.

You actually need the thermostat in to pressurize your cooling system or the coolant won't cyle through the radiator, it'll just cycle around the engine. Most people think without the thermostat in the coolant will just pump freely through the engine and radiator, but it doesn't.

Chuck in a new thermostat, purge the air out of the system and see if it overheats then. I gaurentee it won't, if it does then you've got head problems (but they should already be obvious by now).

Check first to see if the brake lights work, the brake light circuit is what powers the Park safety lockout solenoid. If no brake lights then it will not come out of park position.

Where is the cable broken? Check the pull lever inside the car hasn't broken as you might be able to get a pair of grips in to pull the cable.
If it is further forward there is a lot more work needed. It involves getting into wheel arches and removing the front grill sections.
I recommend you take it to a Good bodywork specialist. They will have all the correct tools and knowledge to sort it out.
