Actron 9110 help
For those who have the Actron CP9110 scan tool and use it with a '94 or '95 Bonneville:
I recently bought a new (old stock) CP9110 with a GM 9111 cartridge and an OBD-2 cable to hook up my '95 SLE. But I am wondering if they sent me the correct cable? Or if I have some other problem on my data line.
My '95 has an OBD II data link connector (DLC) but still uses the OBDI protocol for communication with the PCM.
Here'* what my cable looks like. Molded into the DLC end, is: OBD II 3.0, on the serial connector end is: ACTRON, and the cable is all of six inches long. The question is: Does this setup work for you guys with 94 and 95 Bonnies?
I get a connection error message whenever I try to read codes or data. The tool, I believe, is OK, as it works swell on my '92 SSEi with the OBDI connector.
This is what happens and what I have checked so far:
Ignition key on - yes
Hookup to vehicle test connector OK - yes
Test connector to computer wiring OK - yes (continuity checks OK)
Computer power/ground circuits OK - Fuse is OK.
Correct engine computer installed? May run eng but not match tool setup -
Dealer says yes, correct PCM, correct PROM.
Here is what I have done so far:
Checked continuity between the serial data line at the white PCM connector (d1, d2) and the data link connector (tan wires) - wire has no open
Checked tan wire for short to ground - no continuity to ground
Checked PCM fuse - OK
Pulled PCM out and recorded PROM ID: BNWB 16215814
Recorded part no from Bar code tag on PCM - 86BNWBM75138EYZX
Dealer says IDs are good for '95 Bonneville, suspects bad connection to scan tool.
The FSM says to disconnect all modules on the serial data line, but I am hoping to avoid that effort in the hopes that some of you have had a similar problem in the past.
