Angry Engine Under Power When Switch On Air-cond

Hello to all of you.
My cars model is Fiat Brava 1.8 ELX. A second hand car, Made 1997 and registered 2000. With centre locking, alarm and immobiliser. I am facing a lot of problem on my car now.
There is a long story........

First, I only have one blue key.(I know nothing about the red key before i had bought it on an auction) Any suggestion for me in order not to lost wallet(you know what i mean) in the future?

Second, as the title above under power. The story begin.....When i just bought the car, i feel that the air-cond was not cold. You know in Malaysia the temperature is 30-35 C average every day. It will be a free sauna always.
So, i took the car to nearest fiat service centre for repair. After repaired by changing the condenser and checked all of the sensor only, I got that the air-cond will cut off it self when I switch it on. But it will switch on when the car RPM is higher than 2000 which show on RPM meter and going well when i left the accelerate pedal. It will cut off again when i slightly push the accelerate of the car and would not run back if the RPM is low than 2000. Oh.... my free sauna is back So, I made a complaint to the fiat service centre.
After all checking up, they said maybe cause by the air-cond expand valve which build and hide in the dashboard. It cost not only lost wallet and take time. By watching their face, It seem that they also not enough courage to touch it. Then the mechanic suggest to me an alternate way....fix a relay on the air-cond system( In the front fuse box which near the batery). After fixed the relay, when switch it on, the air-cond will run what ever happen and only will cut off itself when it's cold enough and pressure is to high in a traffic jam. The problem now is the engine is under power (below 500 rpm) even off when the air-cond is switch on.

Third, the fuel injection faulty light is on. It will be on (sure) when i speeding the car at 110 km/h for about 1 to 2 minute. And light up seldom when idle.
Is this have connection with the air-cond???

Ok! I will only mention this three problem first for not shaking the head all of
eveybody have an idea for the problem above please give me a help.
Thanks and regards.
