Actually, this is a Jeep and this is a standard transmission (I bet.. just like mine)The arrow lights at the proper time for an UP shift. As the original answer points out, this is for the best economy, based on your driving. It will never light up in forth gear (no where to go from there). The light is controlled by a vac. sensor. could be a fuel economy shift point indicator. if the vehicle is a standard transmission.

If you're talking about an OBD2 connector, it probably doesn't have one. OBD2 didn't become mandatory until 96. My 95 gc doesn't have one. You can retrieve the codes by cycling the ignition on 3 times in less than 10 seconds(on-off-on-off-on, wait for codes), then count the flashes of the check engine light. Each code will be 2 digits, when code 55 flashes, it's done. There will be a set of slow flashes to indicate the first number of the code, then a short pause, then the next quicker series of blinks will indicate the second number of the code. Code 32 would be 3 slow blinks, a short pause, then 2 quicker blinks. Then there will be a longer pause to indicate the next code. The diagnostic plug is under the hood.
