The DME is located under a cover on the firewall, on the passenger side, just follow the wiriring harness and you will find it. For testing i highly suggest bringing it to a shop and having it checked out. If the problem is the DME i have one depending on when in 95 the car was made (they changed in mid year from what i remember)...
