1988 300 CE electrical problems. PLEASE HELP!

So, I recently purchased my 1988 300 CE a few months ago, which was "highly used" by the way. Anyway, the car had a very old CD changer in it and I'm not sure if it was factory or after market. So a few weeks ago, the CD changer went completely out, but I had an aftermarket CD player I took out of my old car and I had it installed in the Benz. After installation of the new CD player, I noticed that whenever I let down the windows in my car, the speakers go in and out. At first it was just right side (which were already out, but when I pressed the window button would the right side would come back in and go out again), and now ALL the speakers go extremely low when I press the button.

After this happened, the ABS light came on and would not go off. THE NEXT thing that happened was yesterday. I went to my car and started it, and it cut right back off again. After doing this several times, it finally started and stayed on when I revved the engine when I cranked it. Then while I was driving when I finally it running, the engine started idling very high. It sounded like I was revving up the engine when I was in park or on the brakes.

Does ANYBODY know what could be going on right now? I'm really nervous because I bought this car because I really had no other choice and I really don't have a "Benz maintenance budget" and I'm just nervous that this is something big that I'm not going to be able to handle
