Where is the air bag connector location to clear error codes at on a 1996 explorer?
The code is there because there is a problem with the SRS. The code will just come back, unless you repair the system. It may or may not be functional at this time. Working on SRS components is not a DIY repair. Serious injury can occur when working on this system. Take it to a professional.
Where is the obd-1 or obd-2 connector on your 1995 mercury villager what pins do you connect to find stored codes?
On a 1995, there is no accessable OBD plug. There is a connector in the engine compartment that will give you the codes....... sort of !! The connector must be unplug and the proper pins jumped momentarily. Then the check engine light will start flashing to give you a number code sequence. However, without a repair manual (which has pictures), there is no way to tell you the exact location of the connector. It is…
You get the software for the engine (e.g., DDEC for Detroit, Insite for Cummins, and I'm drawing a blank remembering what it is for Cat) and a diagnostic connector (such as NexIQ or Inline for Cummins), pull up the fault codes, and reset them. Now, if it's something which is going to be recurring, those codes will come back until you repair the fault (if they clear at all).
How many miles does it usually take for the monitors on a 96 Explorer to complete all tests after clearing the OBDII codes?
All but the evap and catalyst moniters should clear in about 10 miles. You need a mix of in town and highway driving. The catalyast should clear next. It sometimes takes me as much as 20 miles. The evap maoniter, I usually dont even try, because I have driven them for 40 miles and still to no avail. Remember though to check your pending codes, because when a monter won't clear it is often because…
My diagnostic connector is not working. I scanned for codes but the scanner could not communicate. I had the connector replaced with no luck.Is there a fuse for the diagnostic connector?
Pull the codes that set it, fix the problem & clear the codes. As it's an OBD2 system a scanner is the easiest way, but some can be done manually by jumping certain terminals in the diagnostic connector. Library might have a book or local parts supplier might have the procedure on their computer (Mitchell, Alldata, Shopkey) at no charge.
