Okay so from what I found my 95 v6 is factory working obd2 but I can not get a scanner to power on with it so I can chase the problems … does anyone have any info on this I keep finding just people arguing about it being obd2 or 1 I just want a straight shot answer yes or no if it works and if it’s supposed to why am I not getting power to a scan tool

it should work on v6s. Check your fuses. Don't bother with the manual just get under the dash and pull/inspect them all and it takes less time

It is a 95 but I’m sure it’s obd2 under the dash that’s what the dealer told me I just can’t find the fuse for the port

1994-1995 V6 Mustangs are in fact OBD2 and have a connector under the dash. The 5.0 cars do have the connector, but it's not functional. Need to pull codes on those cars under the hood.


The fuse for the OBD2 diagnostic port is also the same fuse as the cig lighter, so check to see if this fuse has blown. Yellow one highlighted below

It's a very primitive form of OBD2 so don't expect to see a lot of PID's like something made in the last 10 years.

Can confirm. Back when my 94 was a v6, I used to get people at autozone to pull the codes for me all the time. Once the car came of a certain age however, they would start to argue with me, telling me their tool wouldn’t work in anything older than 96. But the plus side to this was when it came time to get the car inspected, the inspection station would never test the computer, because they were only required to do it for cars 96 and newer. Now the cars to old too even test for emissions, so it doesn’t even matter.

It’s not! The 5.0L used ODB I. It uses the test connector under the hood. The 3.8L used ODB II connector under the dash.

But here is my 95 gt that I'm proud to be an original owner
With EEC under the hood test port20240508_065853.jpg
Then there is a ABS test port that is EEC

And I had one of these to test the EEC system
And I still have one 20240508_070231.jpg20240508_070142.jpg

One of the only ways of getting a star tester at that time
You had to work at a ford Lincoln merc dealer
That was back in the day when I was younger.

It was not as advanced as obd2, you can't do any tuning from it but at the time it was all a tech needed to figure a problem out, or start the process.

You can do the first 4 tests with this unit today.



I did have some of the Rotunda tools as well. Snagged them off Ebay over the years and shops liquidated things since nobody messes with EEC-IV now. I had a cruise control test system that was nifty. I ended up flipping most of it back on ebay but kept my ECU breakout box. Between that and the above Innova reader, i have everything I need for my Fox (no ABS or Airbag to worry about)


With a modern Ford, ForScan is the way to go. I've done a lot of stuff with new Fords with it like activate Navigation, reprogram modules, pull DTC's from modules, change various settings like DRL settings, or adjust the stupid 3 blinks for a half-press of the turn signal stalk to something more reasonable like 5-6 blinks per half-press. I also used it to program the PATS keys for my GT and reprogram a Cobra cluster to work on my car. The software is free. You just need laptop and an appropriate OBD2 interface.
