I'm planning on ordering up some sockets and some cabling early next week.
I will be aiming at the 94/95 Bonneville/compatible vehicles first. (I've been thinking of this protocol as OBD94/95BC -- BC meaning Bonneville Compatible. Is this the same as OBD1.5? Anyone know?)
"93 and earlier vehicles can be done by the paper clip method.
"96 vehicles can usually be done at auto parts stores (except for certain parts of the US and Canada it'* harder to find them, I know).
So I'm going to start with the appropriate cables to fit the Actron 9110 and 9145 readers. Alot of these seem to have missing or nonfunctional cables. I don't have one of these instruments myself yet, but I'm looking hard in the usual places (eBay, etc.).
Then, once I feel more confident, I'll try direct cabling for OBD94/95BC from my '94 Bonneville to my PC computer, using low-cost or free software that'* avallable. I'll just be feeling my way along. As I get functional cables, I will make them available to BC members at cost.
I may be down for a day or two or three because I have to do a total computer wipe and Windows reload. So talk to you all later.
