OBD I error scanning

Hello forum,
My car is 1989 230 E. It doesn't seem to have a check engine light. I read about how to read the OBDI codes using a led light. Is my car an OBD I equipped or does is not have it?
If yes where is the scanner connector located in my car.
If no what does the round 9 pin diagnostic socket's pins are used for and how do I extract any data out of the car's computer. This socket is located on the right side of the ABS pump.

1989 230E, 8v, 166.000 km, updated to 94/95 trunk & hood
2002 Daewoo Nexia 50.000 km
1987 VW Jetta GLE 16V, Recaro seats
1982 Volvo 240 DL (lovely car!)
and few more american cars.
