reading codes on OBD1 Sentra

I've searched high and low and i'm looking
for an easy way out. i need to pull the codes from
my 94 nissan sentra. i know you can pull the ecu and
get the led's to flash but, right now we are in a deep freeze
here in the NE. I've heard people talking about using a paper clip to pull the codes.

anyone have the steps to do this.
thanks
bryan

ok i broke down and read the codes.
it came up 32 egr function. i failed my state emissions with a double allowed NOX reading. I checked for rotted hoses to the egr but all were fine.
i have an haynes manual which does a bad job of telling how to replace the egr or even clean it.

does anyone have some good steps with step by step pictures.
i tried autozone but even they were not very involved.
sorry for all the questions i'm nervous about doing.

only because haynes says one thing and autozone says everything can be done from the top.
thanks

Nope...............................................
But here's the factory service manual. You will have to download each file. Each file is a separate system. The IDX.pdf is the index.

Index of /FSM/Nissan/Sentra/1994

Normally they group it all into one file, but anyways.
