Default Does 92' Ranger use 2 or 3 digit trouble clodes?

Hello. I have a 92' Ford Ranger XLT with 2.9 V6 engine. I have searched on the Internet, called Ford dealers, and checked with Ford.com. I have been unable to get an answer to this.

My truck uses the EEC-IV ignition system and OBD1 codes.

When using a code scanner, does my make/model/year return 2 or 3 digit trouble codes?

did you get a code scanner hooked up to it? I have a 92 and just recently bought an actron CP9015 code scanner but dont seem to have a connector for it under the dash.

Hey kinda-fellin. I finally got my answer on the Internet about three weeks ago. My make model returns 2 digit codes. But that might be just for the 2.9 V6 engine. Your truck still might use 3 digit codes.

Yes I did hook up the code scanner. I also have an Actron CP9015 code scanner. If the link connector is definitely not under the instrument panel, you will find it under the hood behind the power distribution box. It is sort of hiding in plain sight dangling from wires. It is trapezoidal shaped. It shouldn't be hard to find now, but I can post a digital photo if you still can't find it.

By the way if you do an engine on test, one procedure in the Actron manual says to "press the accelerator all the way down." This is stupid and irresponsible for them to print a step that could cause damage. You don't need to press the accelerator pedal all the way down. I am going to contact Actron about this.
