CEL, OBD II Won't Scan, Already Tried Searching
I'm new to the Bronco world, but by no means new to forums.
I just picked up a Green '96 XLT with 142xxx on the clock and a 302 under the hood!! I've always liked Broncos, and figured since I've owned Dodge and Chevy trucks, it was time to try a Ford. I basically got it as a winter beater, but it's going to be my dd as I put my STi in the garage
My problem is this - I've got a CEL on, and I can't get my OBD II scanner to work. I looked in the fuse box, low and behold I'm missing the fuse for the cigarette lighter and OBD, so I threw one in from another port.
Well, the problem didn't go away. I'm not getting power to the scanner, and I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right. I need to pass inspection in NJ in a couple weeks, and really need to fix the CEL first.
The guy I bought it from told me it was an o2 sensor, but I don't really trust his word, I'd rather find out what it needs myself.
Anybody know the least expensive way I can go about diagnosing these problems or anyone live in the Boston area that's willing to give me a hand?
Thanks for the help. I look forward to enjoying my new Bronco and have a new forum to play on.
