ok well the first one my code reader said cam shaft sensor(intake)...then for #2 on the dash , the light for the turning signals,fog lights and hazzards wont come on but if you get out of the car and look at them they all work..plus even when my seatbelt is locked in the light wont go off

Ok, The seat belt light.....must be a loose connection under the seat, as for the dash warning lights, I would have the dash out and check the connections and relative bulbs.

Camshaft sensor, Possible as its main job is to control the injectors, but not the throttle!!! , erase the error and see if it comes back again straight away.

Camshaft sensor Intake.... whats before the intake?? MAF.

also take a read of this thread...idle prob:
