Simple answer - YES

Don't haold me to all of the below.....I can't speak of "other makes" but for Honda

OBD-II, came on some 95 cars but was a law for all 96. The government wanted a "standard code list" across all makes

OBD-I, was around from ~90 until the government requirement of OBD-II on 96 and newer.

OBD-0, was around in the late 80's....mainly on the FI engines

You find the proper connector then you need a paperclip or similar piece of wire:
