with regards the lack of heat, does your engine temperature gauge go to its normal position approx half way on most cars, or is it barely moving on the gauge. if the gauge is showing low then your thermostat is probably stuck open, not allowing the water temperature to get to around 80 degrees then opening. as for the electrics side of things i will leave that for the electricians to comment on.
