Hi, I am working on my sisters 99 ford escort and I am trying to jump it into diagnostic mode so I can read the trouble codes through the check engine light
and yes, it's OBD II which is located on the drivers side under the dash. Iwas looking at a haynes manual to found out how to jump it into diagnostic mode but, the manual only shows how to do this on 1.8L and 1.8L engines not 2.0L engines; I know it can be done because, I did it once before but, I forgot which pins to jump? I hope someone can help me out?? Thank you for your time in reading this ^_^

To wywywywy and others:
Ford Escort (and Mondeo and others Fords) which has standard OBD connector has OBD diagnostic. But some has OBDI and others OBDII.
If your car has EEC IV (OBDI) computer of enjection, you can not use "standard" Ford PWM cable. It is only for EEC V usable.
But, I have almost done diagnostic for EEC IV with OBD connector.
