Your car has OBD1 diagnostics. This standard only looks for shorts and opens in key engine circuits and is not as comprehensive as later on board diagnostics in newer cars. To find out how to retrieve the codes stored in the computer of your vehicle (find out why the check engine light is on) follow the link below. On the top of the page click on the top right of the page where it says "Trouble Codes".
