It allows the OBD II scanner to connect to your Ford Explorer to " read " any trouble codes when the check engine light comes on for one thing
No.....its against the law to clear codes.
The codes are telling you there is a problem. If the problem is not fixed the codes will come back.
Pulling a fuse will not clear codes on this vehicle. A scan tool is required to clear codes.
What you are looking for is the DLC or Data Link Connector which will require an OBD-II reader to retrieve codes from. The location of the DLC is on the driver's side under the dash.
some codes are EXPLORE2012 EXPLORER NGKIDSROX
Auto Zone will check your computer codes for FREE... They can also clear them.
Do a Google search - OBD II 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 near the starter motor along with two other connectors.
You'll need an OBD/II compatible scantool to clear the codes.
