Try banging your hand in around the passenger dash area. Sometimes this will make a defective blower motor work. It ca be a fuse, resistor,blower motor, switch or wiring causing this issue

You can find a replacement instrument cluster, either used or rebuilt and that should solve the problem.
A service technician can run diagnostics on your car and should be able to pull the mileage from the Body computer.

May not be the booster as some do make a noise when the brakes are applied. To test press the brakes several times with engine off, Press the pedal down hard and start the engine , the pedal should move down slightly and there should be no whooshing sound . if the above is ok so is the booster.

The selection door, is operated by 1/4" vacuum hoses. When turning the knob or sliding a lever, to select between floor, vents, or dash deck for windshield defrost, vacuum is created by the valve body and the blower will then blow thru the desired vents. When these hoses/lines are compromised, especially on a vehicle over 15 years old it seems likely, vacuum won't be created, and the last working position, is normally where it stays! Until the lines are replaced.
Good luck.

I would try changing the fuel filter and/or pump. My brother had to take the exhaust system off the bottom of the car and then pull the gas tank to get to the fuel filter.

Hope this helps.

My problem was after I would drive the car and the engine would heat up. Once I parked and then tried to start it again while engine was still warm, it would not start. Strangely enough, a jump would solve the problem. But it happened over and over. Once we changed the fuel pump and filter, it never happened again. If you are under there replacing the fuel filter, I recommend changing the fuel pump as well. No sense in having to go through that awful hassle twice.

Sounds as if the back bracks are so worn the wheel calipers are sticking or some brake part has failed. Tear down rear brakes to see what has happened.

Well, a bad connection anywhere on the car would not use power from the battery if everything is switched off. But it could be difficult to start if one of the battery connections is faulty.
If the battery voltage is below 12 after sitting overnight, you have a component or short that is using power. You would need to check the battery voltage with the cables connected and also disconnected.

Disconnect battery, locate starter wires [should be 3] make particular note of how wires are connected, then remove the two nuts that hold them in place, loosen and remove the two bolts keeping hold of starter to prevent it falling and remove starter. Replace new starter and it's two bolts, wires and nuts as previously hooked up, and then battery wire, and carank vehicle.
