Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bought truck for scrap iron price to tinker with
till next kid hits 16 so i havent got the
inclination to pull dash to check bulb. I know
there is a way to do it with analog voltmeter but
cant find one anywhere to buy or borrow. When
teyin to do it with digital i get nothing. Is it
because of digital voltmeter or ia there a
bogger issue to check out?

You can even use a test light, google How to get the codes for an OBD 1 Ford, the site should show up and it will have a wiring diagram on where to connect everything and get a code read out, older Fords will not give you a flash out using the check engine light.
