I have a 1993 chevy cavalier and the other day I left work drove to the store, which thankfully is close to my house, and came out of the store and upon start up the ABS light was on and none of the ac/heater controls except the rear defrost button worked. Then upon getting open and further looking around the cooling fan isnt working either. Ive replaced the ECM and checked all the fuses and relays. Im tight on money so I was trying to do this myself, but I cant figure it out. Is there anything you can recommend checking or know what the problem is?

OK but after you replaced the #7 fuse, did it blow? If the service engine light is on.
Cross these two terminals as shown, A and B then turn the key on. Count the flashes, a 22 will flash as 2 flashes then a short pause, then 2 flashes, if more than one code is stored, the pause will be longer. The codes will display three times and end with 12. Write them down and post here. This connector is right under the middle of the dash...

You need to check wiring and possible the ignition switch, not the key cylinder, but the part the electrical harness plugs into. COLUMN SWITCHES 1. Turn ignition off. Disconnect switch connector. Refer to Fig. 2 . To identify circuit, see WIRING DIAGRAMS and appropriate SWITCH CONNECTOR TERMINAL IDENTIFICATION table. Connector terminals represented in diagram and tables (identified by letter) match connector terminals in illustration. See Fig. 3 , Fig. 4 or Fig. 5 . 2. Check continuity between ground and appropriate terminal of switch connector according to switch position. If continuity is not correct for selected switch position, replace switch. NOTE: For cruise control switch testing, see appropriate CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEMS article in the ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT Section. Use following procedure to test headlight/dimmer, ignition, turn signal and wiper/washer switches. For additional wiper/washer system testing, see appropriate WIPER/WASHER SYSTEMS article in the ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT Section.
