    I went to autozone to get a check engine light scanned, and they told me that they don't have to tool to scan obd1 codes. I didn't think that the 94-95 mustangs were obd1. can anyone confirm this?

    Check the sticky its SUPER easy to pull codes on our cars. Not as easy as obd2 but pretty damn close.

    You can probably use a regular OBD II scan tool to retrieve P-codes and try to erase..but you migth not have too much success..were now using WDS for 05+ which is now part of another program called IDS. The IDS is actually a Panasonic ToughBook with the WDS software attached to a VCM datacable to the OBD II port.
    Like I said prior, you can try and erase the P-codes..but you might have codes stored in the transmission depending on the fault, which in return will possibly cause the P-code to return

    You can get a cheap OBDI scanner at Checker for ~$30.

    My 95 has an OBDII port, can recieve some data, but not everything. Also, all new cars are still using the OBDII connector. It is a government law.
