It is difficult to say without knowing what scan tool you have. I'm guessing it is the 3145 Equus Innova since it has a number display and not a flashing light.

I have noticed you have posted several questions that could have been easily answered in the Haynes Manual available online or at most parts stores. I was in the same boat as you about a year ago with my 95. I got the book and when I get help here the book goes into detail about a lot of the information I get and it helped me. I still get plenty of the help I need here and follow up with my book to complete the task. You will get all the help you need here but the manual will help you even further and sometimes the pictures help also. Just trying to relieve some frustration I know you are experiencing. Good luck and enjoy working on the truck. Sandy

I just count the check engine light to retrieve codes = FREE



A '95 will be three digit codes.

I see someone had printed off info from the old fordfuelinjection site.

2 and 3 digit codes included:

how to read code

the reader i got no numbers just a flashing light so it is not much better than a jumper wire. i plane on getting a haynes manual or better yet a real shop manual. and some fuel line disconnect tools and learn how to use them.

Get the disconnect plastic ones in the set. Metal ones don't work as well I have heard. The plastic worked great for me. You can order a ford manual on CD from Ebay but the book you can carry to the truck. Sandy
