Canadian Tire has a sale on code readers , price ranges from $39 to $299. I am wanting it for a 1995 Mustang but some code readers state they are for 1996 and up vehicles. The 94 , '95 , and '96 V6's were all the same. Dose anyone know if Fords prior to 1995 have plug ins for OBD1 or Obd2 ? Thanks

If you have or plan to have any GM vehicle, make sure you get the model capable of reading those codes (OBD2)...

I would suspect if it says 96 it will not go back to 95 : (...

On the older Fords one could get by with a test lite on one of the terminals in the test block. Been years since i have had a Ford , so a little vague on them anymore since i went with a Goat .

The OBDI and OBDII debate on a 1995 Mustang can be tricky. My first question: Do you have a V8 or a V6 in there? Let's remember one thing: By 1996 all (or almost all) cars were on OBDII. Some cars had it before then. Okay, depending on the exact date your Mustang was manufactured MIGHT play a role in this, but the 1994 and 1995 V6 mustang had the OBDII port. It had the early OBDII system, more like a beta version, but the diagnostic hookups were OBDII. Now the 1994 and 1995 V8 Mustang used the OBDI system. Yea, it was an interesting time in the auto world. For the most part, you can use an OBDII on a V6 1995 Mustang. If you have the V8 in there, expect to connect an OBDI diagnostic machine to it.

OBD 2 began in 1996 so 1995 would be OBD1. OBD1 isn't very informative. It can just point you in a general direction if your check engine light comes on.

Ford started OBD II in 1994, not all were OBD II until 1996 but most were by 1995, From 1994 the V6 mustangs were OBDII, the V8s (5.0L) were not until 1996 (4.6L). OBDII scanners will work on a 95 mustang V6.

1996 was the year OBD II became mandatory on all US vehicles.

I'm wondering why you don't just look and see which style of diagnostic port your car has?

Generally speaking,
Scan tool generally does not indicate a bad sensor,it shows you the sensor that is not within operational parameters. I stopped pulling wrenches about 16 months ago. Also, ~if~ you get a series of codes, 13, 44 etc, fix the lowest number first. After you made a repair, disconnect the battery to clear the memory, unless the scan tool has the option to clear codes, reconnect and start the engine, drive it if needed and see what comes back, if anything. Generally cheap scan tools will only pull codes, the better ones will give you a data stream and the better ones might let you interact with the computer to give it commands to assist in diagnosis. Raise RPM, delete cylinders, etc.
Have fun with your toy.
