CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

1994 Ford Explorer

Computer problem
1994 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 197000 miles

Have a 94 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition that the light came on the dash saying Check Engine Soon. How can I manually run the dignostic codes and where can I find the codes list for it. I'd like to be able to do this without having to take it to a shop or Autozone to have scanned. Please help if you can.

Thank you in advance.

Hello

You can ground the DLC (Data Link Connector) which is located in the right front inner fender panel. When you do this, it will cause the engine light to flash with pauses. To read the code(s) given, follow instructions below.
