Those modes won't use flash unless you explicitly tell them too. Because you're no longer in a fully-automatic mode, there's leeway for the camera to adjust other exposure settings to (try to) let in enough light / make the picture brighter.
If you want the flash to fire, press the Flash button before shooting and the flash should pop-up. Its #3 here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T3/T3A2.HTM

The problem is when I press the button, the flash will not pop-up. When I press the button, the ISO setting screen appears. I have tried every setting I can think of. I have to go to automatic mode and push the picturentaking button halfway for it to pop-up

Somehow one of your "Custom Functions" got set (from the previous owner, I'd assume). From Page 77 of the user manual:

Just hop into the menu, and change this back (to "0: Raise built-in flash"), and you should be good to go!
