Icon5 Random Check Engine Light.

Anyone ever have a really random check engine light? It will stay on for a couple seconds, then go out. sometimes it stays on for 2-3 minutes, But it always goes out, so I cant have the codes read out. It is a 1993. 2.3L OBD I

My bad, I missed the year of your Ranger, and the OBD 1!

It still might not be a bad idea to try scaning for codes:
