I think the factory manuals are available from Helm. You can get less detailed cdroms from ebay pretty cheap but they may not have everything you need.

I'm getting code 32. I have no steering wheel feature issues and the yellow plug seems to have all it's wires intact. What's next? (grin)

I had the exact same problem on my 2001 LS. Blinking code 36. Corrected the problem myself. Look for a yellow connector under the driver's seat. Very thin wires go into this connector. Because of the driver's seat moving constantly upon entry and exit the thin wires constantly flex at the connector. One of the conducting wires inside the insulation will fracture setting a code 36. The wires remain connected to the connector by the wire insulation and look normal. To check have someone start the engine while you push the wires into the connector to form a connection. If the code 36 does not flash you found the problem - a broken conductor inside the insulation. To repair just bridge the connector on both sides with a piece of wire and butt splices. Repair completed. A little awkward working under the seat from the back although it can be done. I removed my driver's seat to completed the repair properly. Cost of this repair - short length of wire and two butt splices. ED1945
