Do you see the large connector facing outward toward the drivers seat just under lip of dash and to the right of steering column?


Diagnostic Link Connector No. 18. Locations: Near the left hand strut tower. Near the right hand strut tower.


Diagnostic Link Connector No. 16. Locations: Near the left hand strut tower. Near the right hand strut tower. Next to the airflow meter or battery.


Some are behind the drivers side (left of steering wheel) ashtray.


1995 is a intermediate model for toyota and most have the OBD-1 & OBD-2 ports and neither are normal ports which require a accessory adaptor. Also Toyota tried to hide their code reader ports, so for many models they are in different places, Some of these locations include: lower left by the hood latch, near or around that location, above or below or behind this area behind removable panels.

Depending on your scanner you will need to call or go to where you can purchase the scan tool adaptor for your brand/model scanner unless it has it included. Toyota by law as other had to provide the scan tool ports for USA but did not until later provide the standard port we all now today until the USA made this clear. So the ports for Toyota are different, during those early years a scan tool cost too much for the average person not using it daily for Business, so this kept the shade tree mechanic form accessing the computer, cost and lack of after-market companies making the Toyota scan port adaptor in the early years kept the small local mom & pop shop from scanning computers on Toyota's, the dealerships kept this underwraps and to themselves as long as possible, and never told buyers or shops how to find them so you may need a shop manual for that make & model to even find the location its at.


Also if OBD-1 port is found and you know which pins are your diagnostic trouble codes can be read by connecting terminals TE1 and E1 of the connector (likely under the hood {DLC1} port location on some models), the check engine light will then flash out the codes you will just have to count the blinks and refer to a repair manual to determine what the code(s) mean.
