My personal suggestion would be to go for these repair catalogs. I know this website www.reliable-store.com that i used to get manuals from, and they have all models online.
I also brought for my 1989 BMW, such old model, they had it and it was very good manual. Go ahead, I bet.

I suspect your cd play needs you to enter a security code. You should look through the documents that came with your car for a hand written 4 digit code on the owners manual perhaps.

This is from Ken on CarPros:
Here is the way to reset the security system.


Here is the systems descriptions

There are 2 security system, namely anti-theft and immobilizer.

Here are the 2 systems.

Anti-theft system is controlled by Body Control Module (BCM). BCM receives signals from hood switch, trunk switch, door switches and Local Control Modules (LCMs). There are 5 LCMs located throughout vehicle.

To set anti-theft system in armed mode, remove ignition key, close all doors, trunk and hood. Lock doors using key or remote controller. The SECURITY light will illuminate for 30 seconds, then flash in 2.4 second intervals, indicating system is in armed mode.

To cancel armed mode, unlock and open any door or trunk lid using key or remote controller. SECURITY light will flash every second, indicating system is disarmed.

Alarm will activate (horn sounds, headlights flash and starter circuit is disabled) if any of the following conditions occur while system is in armed mode:

Engine hood or trunk lid is opened using the hood or trunk lid release.
Door(s) is unlocked without key or remote controller.
Tampering with any door/trunk lid key cylinders.
To deactivate anti-theft system, unlock door or trunk using key or remote controller.

If it is the immobilizer that is preventing the engine from being started, ensure you have the correct key and the transponder is intact. Quite often keys are dropped and if it breaks open, the internals would scatter all over. When this occurs, there is a tendency for the transponder to be lost.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken
I hope that helps you out!

It is most likely the alternator. You will need to check it and see if it needs replaced. All you need to do is hook up an electrical mulimeter while the car is running. Black wire to negative, red to positive and see how many volts you get. You should get between 13 and 15. Any lower and you need to check the alternator.

You might try replacing the actual flasher unit/relays themselves, just in case. Check all the bulbs, but if that ends up okay, it may be worth a shot to fix that buggared switch. Some manufacturors do run the signals through the flashers, I believe.

First off define "High" Speeds. Some models were equipped with throttle governors and or rpm limiters that prevented over revving and also kept the vehicle from exceeding certain speeds. Other than that, there are some auto stores that offer free computer scans that may be able to diagnose your problem.
