    Im not 100% sure on this, I don't really know where it is, but I brought my car to Autozone or Napa, or an auto parts store, and they will check it for you for free. Hope this helps...

    The data link connector (DLC) didn't start under the dash until OBDII started in 96.
    On earlier models it was just using a jumper wire at the diagnostic plug and counting blinks of the CEL. That one should be under the hood. Honda guys can chime in here.
    It was very basic back then. Probably just an o2 sensor for a 92.

    The 2-P Service Check Connector should be located just under the glove compartment, approximately 1" from the right kick panel. It's buried in a rubber mount--carefully remove it, using a small screwdriver. Jump it with a paper clip, turn ignition switch to ON, and count the flashes of the CEL.

    Perform K-Test on the ECM:

    K-Test: Remove the MAP Sensor connector and turn the ignition switch to ON (Position II). Using a multimeter, check for 5 volts going between the MAP Sensor connector's reference wire (+) and ground. As you look at the connector, this is the socket on the right. Really press the black test lead into a cleaned main ECM ground on the thermostat housing. If the voltage is low, it's probably indicating ECM failure. Most failed ECMs will record a fraction of a volt. To me, the K-Test is simple, elegant, and accurate.

    Along the firewall, just to the right of the fuel filter. Look for the vacuum hose going from the throttle body to the MAP Sensor.

    My bet is that your ECM is fried, if the CEL stays on when you turn the ignition key to ON (Position II).

    Red = +
    Black = Negative

    You turn the ignition switch to ON (Position II) and connect the right-hand socket in the connector to the red test lead. Connect the black test lead to any ground on the engine block.
