I'm just not having any luck finding the connectors in the engine compartment of my 84 to hook up a code scanner(cheap autozone purchase). I found them with no prob on a 84 v-6 convt I was helping a friend with but not mine....:mad: Thanks for the help.

I believe they are located under the cover for the ignition coil. (at least on my 86 they are...)

Check there and let me know if they aren't there?

Anyone else?

Richsvo, I did check there but no luck, thanks. The manual for the scanner points out a few locations and I did check them out. Wiring is a little unorganized under the hood. In the process of cleaning it up. Anyone else????:(

Joe, I own 2 84s u should find the test connector in the coil area as Rich described. Check again to make sure u did not overlook it and be on the lookout for a black plastic cover that says eec test. This cover holds both connectors and is found commonly on the later 2.3 cars but, I dont know if it was on the svo from factory although I have seen them being used on them.

I was lucky to make it home last night...trouble shot in the driveway, then the white smoke of death started billowing out. Needless to say, I was done for the night.

Can I start a thread on wives that don't understand the whole man/car relationship...:D
