96 bonneville sse scan tool
I did some searching on this topic, but I didn't find what I was looking for, so I'm going to ask =)
My dad has a 96 bonneville sse, and it is stumbling very badly. It used to throw the check engine light on occasion, (it no longer does, but the stumbling has gotten worse) but whenever we had the codes read, there were none!
He has borrowed the Tech 1 scan tool from a friend, but the connector on it does not fit his 96. From what I understand, his car is OBD II, and he insists (although I have nothing to back this up with) that the Tech 1 will work for his car if he had an adapter. He seems to think that his car has some strange connector on it, that is not correct for the year.
So, I am wondering
1) Will the tech 1 work on his car?
2) If so, where can we find the adapter to use it?
3) If not, what (cheap!!) scanning tool solutions are there? I see the one from scantools, it doesn't seem too bad for it'* price, but I don't see any guarantee it will work on a 96.
Any help would be appreciated.
