FORD RANGER ENGINE PROBLEM

1999 Ford Ranger • 20,000 miles

Where is the location of the ECC (ECU, ECM, engine controls computer) on a 1999 Ford Ranger? It is not behind the kick panel on both the left and right sides, it is not under the dash on the drivers side, it is not behind the glove box and I cannot find it in the engine compartment. I did find an odd shaped 5 (large) pin connector on the side or the power distribution (fuse box) on the driver side fender in the engine compartment, (it says ECC diagnostics). But, there is no way my handheld OBD II will ever connect to the only available connector. I've been a GM tech (and Honda and Nissan/Mitsubishi) for almost 40 years. Hate Fords. Does anybody have any idea where the design genius's hid the damn computer!
