I'm showing off my first car I think this was a good pick for a first car. Also there are a few things i point on in the pics. But it's all minor stuff i can live with.
My CD player

My driver's side lock button doesn't work, but the unlock does. Passenger side works both lock and unlock.

What do you mean by you found the code?

The keypad code for the drivers door keypad, it's located where the arrow shows under that panel. there are some threads here that give better info.

Most likely broken wire in wiring bundle between door and body. Take junction apart, peel back rubber boot, look for broken wire.
 


















Very nice for a first vehicle... I think you will like it - I love mine and will probably never sell. You've got just enough stuff to keep you busy for a while, not too bad. For your door locks, check out this link:

For the back door that doesn't work and the broken handle, you can probably get that at a junk yard and look at this thread:

I disassembled my armrest and made new stand-offs with plastic epoxy; drilled new holes for the screws and reassembled. But the material on mine is in good shape - I don't think it would be hard to recover with a new peice of foam and some gray leather.
For the sagging rear springs and the whip lash you get when you go over uneven surfaces, check out Monroe Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting shocks, (I purchased mine from O'Reilly Auto Parts with a lifetime warranty). They are awesome! I can't believe what a difference they made on the ride quality! It completely eliminated the whip lash I used to get going over uneven surfaces and eliminated the sagging rear end - I should have done this years ago!!! These shocks come with coil helper springs, are pre-assembled and are self adjusting. Best of all, they are sold in pairs for only $100 bucks.
For the fog lights, I found them brand new/complete with the brackets for $35.16 each at the following link:

How many miles do you have? Does it run good? 2 wheel or All Wheel Drive? Have fun!!!;)
