THE RADIO CIRCUITRY OFTEN FAILS IN THE 88, AND 89 CARS. USUALLY FROM TOO MUCH HEAT BUILDUP. FEEL THE RADIO WHEN IT STOPS WORKING, ITS USUALLY MUCH WARMER THAN THE SURROUNDING PARTS. IN SHORT, YOU MOST LIKELY NEED TO REPLACE THE RADIO. I HAD 3 TOWNCARS, 88 SIG. SERIES, CARTIER AND AN 89 SIGNATURE SERIES, ALL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I HAD TO REPLACE THE RADIO. I OPTED TO GO TO A SALVAGE YARD RATHER THAN TRYING TO PUT IN A RADIO THAT HAD TO BE MODIFIED.

If the word error appears on the cassette deck, the heads could need a good cleaning. Dust which collects can cause an error and reject the tape from playing. Try using a cassette head cleaner to see if this alleviates the problem.

the thunder gun is in numbersAfter the interrogation scene ends there are six big white canisters in front of the player on the walls. (Note: they are not the small propane tanks on the ground; they are the big white ones).Shoot, or throw grenades at all six canisters until Nova-6 comes out. (Note: the player must cause damage to the canisters before the player's attackers do. The player might want to flashbang their attackers too).Run past the ladder to a small room connected to where the player first starts the mission.If done correctly the player will see a black tape sticking out of a cassette player next to the door way.Hold down the action key and the tape will disappear from the cassette player, or the obvious shake in the screen as cue.Continue on until the player gets to the first of Clarke's weapon caches, behind the fridge after the rooftop jump.Look to the left and the player should find a cassette player.When at the cassette player, press the use button and notice the cassette go in.If done correctly, notice the tape goes in and the player hears several tunes, and the screen shakes.The Thunder gun will appear on the wall above the cassette player.These are the steps of how to get the thunder gun outside of zombies

It's a pitch variation and wobble cause by voltage variations and motor deficiency, most cassette decks have a rating of .2% and wow could be heard on some taped musical instruments as an Oboe more pronounced.

I am having the same problem - I got the 'stuck' tape out with a pair of tweezers, but the grinding and error 'E 13' continues to be displayed. I did however find this: http://www.carforums.net/showthread.php?t=11337 E13 : Tape Communication Error Cause(s): The micro-processor is reading the speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast or too slow. Correction(s): It the tape player is still playing a cassette, try a new cassette. If there is still an error, service the unit at a Service Center. Looks like the only thing for us is to bring it to a dealer :-( - or get a new system.

there are 31,622,400 seconds in a leap year. Cause if there are 86,400 seconds in a day and 31,536,000 seconds in a year, you add 31,536,000 to 86,400 and you get 31,622,400

Assuming water boils at 212oF. Exposure at 140oF for five seconds will cause thermal injury to the skin. At 150oF, exposure for two seconds will cause injury

Could be a noisy ac compressor that is low on freon.

I'd like to know too! Mine does the same thing - it makes a rattling noise upon startup that goes away after 30 seconds or so and isn't present while driving or idling.
