Exclamation Wiring/electrical probs?

Ok, so just bought this car, trying to fix it up. Here's whats wrong:

Low beams don't work (changed bulbs too).
Passenger turn signal (front) only works when you put on your turn signal, not when the lights are just on.
Tail-lights are missing all the bulb-sockets.
radio displays "code"
temp. display does not work.
light on dash does not illuminate the gas gauge.
power mirror do not work.
Fog lights do not work (also no idea where the button to turn them on is)

just got the car a few days ago. its a 93 318i 5-speed.

Any help appreciated.

Airborne is an unknown quantity at this point
Start with checking all your fuses

ok lets start...
1- check fuses and any exposed wiring..
2- change the bulb
3-order them from pelicanparts.com i can give u part numbers if u want
4-u need to code from the dealer to unlock the radio....if ur gona change to aftermarkt head units, dont worry about it...
5-wat do u mean doesnt work? wrong temp? or doesnt do anything when u press the button..if it is showing u the wrong temp, it might have came out of its holding area which is in the brake duct.
6-bulb is out behind gauge
7-check fuses, if not, it might just be the motor has been burned out or they might be unplugged
8-fog lights, might be bulb, might be unplugged, the location: a button next to ur light switch...

congrats on the car
