Re: question for the pros here

Go to your local parts store and have them pull the codes. It's free at most places, and it will give us a much better idea of what's going on.

BTW, that's a nice, clean fox you have there.

Re: question for the pros here

Do the parts stores in your area do OBD I checks? Around here they only do OBD II for you which sucks.

Re: question for the pros here

but if the light is flashing off and on will it still read the code if the light is off? It doesnt do it unless your are driving down the road

Re: question for the pros here

OBD I is under the hood on the right (Passenger) rear of the engine bay, towards the firewall. It should have some kind of cover on the connector to protect it from the elements.

Foxes are different than 94-95 models. The connector in my car is on the passenger side.
