You'll have to do a scan on the computer to find the trouble codes.
Your model can be done without a scan tool, research "check OBD 1 code Ford" online for the procedure, or you can find it in most repair manuals.

The only way to know where the concern is would be to retrieve the trouble codes; without scan tool, this information not provided by the manufacturer.

Self-diagnosis procedures (with the diagnostic scan tool):
- With the ignition switch OFF, connect the diagnostic scan tool (Hi-scan pro) to the data link connector located under side of master vacuum in engine compartment.
- Make sure the ignition switch is in the on position, and then choose correct vehicle and model, proceed to diagnostic data link menu item.
- Choose the inspection item after initializing the unit.
- Press malfunction code detection No. 1 and diagnostic scan tool will display any malfunction code found.
Notice: A malfunction code is a four-digit number that is continuously output until the failure code is erased by the diagnostic scan tool.
- From the list of failure codes, verify the failed part and repair it according to self-diagnosis procedures.
- After repair, erase all malfunction codes stored in the ABS control unit by selecting inspection item (No. 4).

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

New ECm installed and code PO315 will not clear. Crankshaft position system variation not learned. What should I do?


Usually this means that the crankshaft variation relarn procedure has to be done, this has to be done usually when a major component is replaced much like you just changed the computer, the bad news is the dealers scan tool is vehical specific and the Tech2 which is the dealer scan tool can perform this task, you will most likely have to take your car to the dealer to have this done, autozones scan tool will not do the relarn on this car or any car, there scan tool is a generic code reader for trouble codes the GM Tech 2 scanner is more vehical specific and has the ability to perform the task you need done to your truck.....

There seems to be no problem. How do I access the


To access trouble codes, you need to plug a hand held scan tool into the van's diagnostic port under the dashboard. The scan tool will record any codes stored in the van's computer. You can have this done (it's a free service) at most parts stores.

How to read trouble codes on 1998 Toyota Camry w/o scan tool


You can go to any auto parts store and they will usually read them for you for free. Around the late 90s many of the auto computer systems began requiring scan tools rather than the older method of simply flashing lights on the dash if you jumpered the correct pins.
