OBD fuse, 95 Bronco


New member
Oct 5, 2019
I have a 95 Bronco. The check engine light came on but the scanner can't read the code. I was told it could be the fuse but I can't seem to locate the fuse. The cigarette lighter works cause I plug my cell charger into it.

I'd also like to mention that I recently had the transmission worked on. I read somewhere it could be the transmission control switch wiring causing a fuse to blow

Any suggestions on what is causing the issue?

Yo Dameon,


Here ya go!

Code reader or self test stops, try this "Scan Tool Won't Initiate Self-Test Due to Poor Grounds", Corroded Wiring, etc.; read more on how to Ground the STI & Proceed w/ Test;Source:
by jermil01If still no codes, see No Codes by Ryan M @https://web.archive.org/web/20161015...om/page44.htmlDwell on items that can be easily tested such as battery voltage, etc.


When the ignition switch is ON, it turns the EEC power relay ON.

The EEC power relay provides power to the powertrain control module (PCM) .

Check the relay, as long as horn can honk,  swap horn relay in place of EEC power relay.

 EEC IV Power Relay is served by Maxi Fuse I (eye) in under hood power distribution box (PDB) .

AND Maxi Fuse U serves Ignition Sys, PCM Power Relay Coil.
