Okay. I have to ask a couple more questions. First, when the heat doesn't work, do you mean the fan isn't turning on until it is on high? As far as the battery, after the engine dies, is the battery dead again? And finally, have you checked to make sure the parking brake cables are still attached under the vehicle and not broken?
As far as the air flow issue, you shouldn't need to remove the dash. Check under it. There may be a couple thin panels that can be easily removed to access under the dash. At that point, you will be able to trace the hoses. NOTE: If you are lucky, with the engine on, you may actually hear a hissing sound where the leak is located.
Let me know what you find.
