Often on your Mustang, codes can be present even if the check engine light hasn't been activated, so LMR has put together a list of steps a cheap and easy way to dump the computer codes without using expensive equipment. Also, please be aware that trouble codes are 2 or 3 digits. No cars use both digits, so be aware of that during your diagnosis.
That's it! Dumping your codes can be quick and easy if provided with the correct steps. As always, for all things engine-related for your Fox Body Mustang, check out all of our products at Late Model Restoration.
