Hey guys, I was doing a search and came across this thread. I'm trying to figure out why I couldn't get my EQUUS 3145 to read any codes from my 1993 Ranger XLT 5spd or 4sd OD.
I just got the little truck and had plans to sell it since my son decide to go for a tuner car, but I have decided to keep it and tinker with it. I kinda like driving it.
First thing I noticed was sooty plugs like it's burning rich. I got the reader thinking I could pulls some codes and try to get at the repairs. I connected the reader and it powered up but didn't connect to the EEC. Equus is good as it connects to other cars. I am wondering what it could be.
I read this thread and I figure, the 1993 must have a fuse blown too, that is keeping the reader from act passing power thru.
Then again, I thought maybe the manual trans may have something to do with reading.
Can any of you help with ideas of how to trouble shoot getting the reader to work? In the a.m. I'll look for a fuse....
Thanks to all for the help.
