Default How do I pull codes for check engine light?

I have a 93 camry v6. It is obd1 so the local autoparts cant do it
with the obd 2(96+up). I did this years ago on a 95 maxima by turning a
screw on the engine computer and then counting the flashes. Is the
camry the same? If so where is the computer hidden? Thanks

AutoZone has free online repair guides, it tells you how to pull the
OBD-I codes. Autozone may still have an OBD-I reader you can borrow for
free to pull the codes.

1982-95 MODELS

All models except the 1MZ-FE engine is equipped with OBD I till 1995.
1. Make sure the battery voltage is at least 11 volts.
2. Make sure the throttle valve is fully closed.
3. Place the gear shift lever in Neutral. Turn all accessories
off.
4. The engine should be at normal operating temperature.
5. Using a jumper wire, connect terminals TE1 and E1 of the
Data Link Connector 1 (DLC1).
6. Turn the ignition switch ON, but do not start the engine.
Read the diagnostic code by the counting the number of flashes of the
malfunction indicator lamp.
7. Codes will flash in numerical order. If no faults are
stored, the lamp flashes continuously every 1/2 second. This is
sometimes called the Normal or System Clear signal.
8. After the diagnosis check, turn the ignition OFF and remove
the jumper wire.
9. Compare the codes found to the applicable diagnostic code
chart. If necessary, refer to the individual component tests in this
section. If the component tests are OK, test the wire harness and
connectors for shorts, opens and poor connections.

If the V6 didn't have OBD-I, what does it have:

"All models except the 1MZ-FE engine is equipped with OBD I till 1995."
