  Why when I press the horn key to switch on the add-on cop cars sirens the game crashes?

To use the sirens of any add-on cop car and avoid a game crash when is trying to use them, you must put in the game folder also the addon_vehtypes.ar file, usually included in the cop car archive. Get the most updated one, made to let work any cop car available for MM2, here.

  In multplayer mode, why do other players see me as an in-game Mini Cooper?

Because you are using an add-on car that the other players do not have, therefore they default to the Mini Cooper.

  How to put and use sidelight (indicator)?

The authors of MM2 did not put this feature in. Some cars have them when the reverse gear is on because they are part of the reverse light object and uses an animated texture; anyway, there's no way to have switchable ones.

  Why when I run MM2 it crashes during its loading giving an Heap Overrun error?

This happens because there are too add-on .ar files in your game folder. Take out some of them, especially the ones of the unused add-on cars and tracks, until the game won't be able to work properly.

  I have installed Midtown Madness 2 on my PC. When I launch it, it takes an huge time to get started, about 20-30 minuntes. Kindly suggest what could be the reason?

This problem happens using Windows XP or Windows Vista as operating system. To solve it download the game patch from here and install it; after, download the Speedboot from here, extract the Midtown2.exe file in the archive and replace the one in your game folder with this.
Now the game won't take anymore too much time to start after have launched it.

  Is there a way to get a downloaded add-on vehicle to work on a downloaded add-on track?

Really downloaded add-on vehicles work on downloaded add-on tracks, but it's not for all of them, especially for the ones with very detailed 3D models. Is always suggested to play an add-on track without have played one of the game cities before, SF and London, otherwise there could be problems.
