Default 1995 ABS Light stays on

I have a 95 2WD manual, OBDII connection with an ABS light that stays on. Checked the fluid level and all is good there. In the hopes of a quick fix I replaced the sensor on the differential. OBD port is useless to check codes as my reader will only go back to 1996 for ABS codes. Any ideas on how to pull codes to troubleshoot the ABS system? Thanks in advance for any input

I think 94 still had an EEC-IV style connector under the hood for ABS codes.

Yes I have RABS. Does my 95 have the EEC-IV style connector under the hood? I haven't seen it but it may be tucked away. OBDII connection operates for all general codes but for this trouble shooting I need to pinpoint the ABS codes.

I read the link posted on bleeding the RABS just not following the procedure. As of now brakes are working fine. No pulsing, normal pedal feel and travel. Thanks for the input so far just need a little rudder kick in the right direction.

I have a 1995 also pulled the ABS code from the OBD-II hookup under steering on dash.
Just use the 1996 settings on the reader,
Got mine to pull up the front Right ABS sensor bad.
Can't hurt to try,
We'll that is if you have the front wheel ABS??
Could also give code for why light is on....
