I have just got a 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX with a 4.6L V8 Running EEC-V management.
I have connected my laptop to it using a cheap OBD2 to USB cable from Ebay, and run a few programs. I can see there are no fault codes and see some of the engines parameters.
What I would like to do is run a self test. I used to have a Ford Granada Cosworth which ran EEC-IV management and it was possible to do KOER and KOEO tests on this by shorting a pin on the self test connector.
How can I run similar tests with EEC-V? I noticed in the glove box there is a connector which says "ARK/EVO Test" and it looks like a Self Test Output connector according the Ford Fuel Injection site. Do I need to sort some pins on this connector? Or is it possible to start a self test running from my laptop?
