The OBDII connector is behind a removable panel lower part of dash between steering wheel and drivers door, that being said I have found them on the passenger side but towards the center so you could plug in a scanner from the drivers seat.
It will not be in the engine compartment, OBDI was in the engine compartment, but there should be a sticker in the engine compartment saying OBD I or OBD II.
1995 Ranger is a transition year for OBD(on board diagnostics), all 1995 Rangers are OBD II(the current standard), but not all scanners will work to read codes on these.
1994 and older Rangers used OBD I
First get the date of manufacture.
On the drivers door(back side jam) there will be a sticker, upper left corner should have that date
2/95 would be Feb, 1995
10/95 would be Oct, 1995
Rangers made from Jan. thru June didn't always work with regular OBD II scanners
Rangers made from July 1995 to end of production in 2012 worked with pretty much any OBD II scanner.
If you have a Jan to June 1995 then try the Auto XRay scanner, select OBDII generic in the menu.
EEC stands for Electronic Engine Control, so is pretty generic.
1994 and older Rangers used EEC-IV computer with OBD I communications, 1995 and up used EEC-V computer with OBD II communications
