My wife has a 1996 Mustang GT convertible. We bought it new in 1996
and it gets service at regular intervals. Just today the check engine
light came on for the first time.
I typically do my own work, but haven't had any reason to work on this
particular car as this is the first time anything has failed.
Is there a way to find out the trouble code without having access to a
diagnostic computer? In previous cars, I could short two wires
together on the diagnostic connector and the check engine light would
blink in a pattern that would tell me what codes were stored. Is
there any such trick for the '96 GT?
