Default checking codes on a Ford?

Does anyone know if you can check the PCM codes on a 92 Mercury the same as you can a GM car. (by jumping terminals on the data connector.) If so, which connectors need to be jumped? Thanks!

I think there is a key-turn sequence that brings up the codes by flashing the light on the dash.

I found a way to do it from a website. You have to ground the dianostic circuit with another plug nearby, then you have to use a voltmeter to get the codes. Ford is retarded and made the sequence WAY too fast to jot the numbers down. The voltmeter will flick with each digit. It'* way too hard to do it that way. guess I'll have to use a scan tool.

You can test for the codes...

First, you need to start the car

Secondly, you need to put it in D

Thirdly, step out of the car

"Fourthly" Aim it for a cliff'* drop off

"Fifthly" Put brick on gas pedal

Once it'* at the bottom, you can see if it went away







Sorry, had to
