OH YEAH! Sometimes I just love working for a Ford Dealership, in conversation today with a technician I mentioned I was buying a code reader for my 94', about an hour later he hands me, free of charge, a Rotunda/Ford Code reader for EEC-IV!!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

This is NOT mine but looks just like it!

I like your overpriced paperclip. At least you got it for the price of a paperclip.

True but, a paper clip doesn't correctly count flashes of the CEL either. This way, or even if I paid $20 bucks for a new one, it takes the "human error" out of the equation, like I've seen on here many, many times....

To each his own, I say....

I'm a cheap ***. I'll run the codes over and over until I'm sure I counted them right. If I had any extra money to buy a code reader it would be an OBDII one.

You only need to hook up the blue wire in the picture, you can use a paper clip or short length of wire. You only need to hook up the voltmeter if the check engine light doesn't work.

Yes. Then turn off the key, wait a minute or so and start the engine to get the running codes. Follow the engine running instructions and make sure the truck is warm for all tests.

o.k. guys I ran a KOEO and KOER test with my handy dandy tester and got the following:

KOEO:

111 - I think this means "system passed"
10- ?
124 - ?

KOER:
632 - I forgot to press the OD button!

Looks like all is well, I think I'm gonna replace the O2 sensor anyway cuz' it's 15 years old! Anyone have any idea what codes 10 and 124 are? They are not listed in my Haynes manual.....

Thanks in advance!

How the hell do you get a 10? I've never seen the light flash zero. lol

10= cylinder #1 low during cylinder balance test
124= TPS voltage higher than expected

Ahh... cuz' I was using:



See, it is better than a paper clip!

So, in your opinion, is there anything to worry about? Should I replace the TPS and O2 sensors?
