See my profile, I am not a "paid mechanic" nor am I paid here. I am mostly a CJ Guy! I am just a member like you, trying to help you out! (I just come here a lot more often)
My Dad has a '86 T-Bird and I have done/learned how to do most of its repairs (he bought it new, rebuilt engine [once] now has almost 1/2 a millon miles.)
I really do not think the lights issue, will be read by the scanner--nor will bad injectors (controlled by the computer, not monitored) Nor will you get a "cylinder 45 misfire", or anything similar.
Had problem with surging--bad idle. Cut off. Replaced with salvage yard specials----whole throttle body, $10 (used the used injectors, 1st time to get her figured out). Replaced with new ones, when we rebuilt her.
Sometimes richness is the O2 sensors (2 on the 3.8L V-6)---found computer did not pick up on that either.I do not know what engine you have. Guessing 300 inline.
Your lights have to be FUSE---Circuit breaker---bad ground or bad connection---broke wire, maybe your solenoid is loose/corroded/ take apart and clean etc.
Are you using a scanner that you count the beeps and count the light flashes?
