I've been out of town, but I've been PMing both of you guys`(bigeric and bonnie94ssei), as you know, since I got back.
This is a probably a good time for an update:
I've been assembling what I call the "Buttermore" cable -- the homemade cable that Bill wired up a year or two ago that allows you to hook up the Actron CP9110 scanner to '94 and '95 Bonnevilles, or any other GM cars of that era that had the hybrid so-called "OBD1.5" diagnostics. The Actron # for this cable was CP9115, but Actron doesn't make it anymore, nor even the CP9110.
You can still get the Actron CP9110 on Ebay for very economical prices, but you don't necessarily get the CP9115 cable (or even the GM CP9111 cartridge, for that matter) and you can't buy it (the CP9115) anywhere that I know of..
My cable looks like this:
It'* exactly the same schematic as Buttermore'*, but physically different. As bonnie94ssei mentioned, I have been making some improvements on mine, and will start sending it out to any BC members who need one, as soon as the last testing is done this weekend.
I have willwren'* ok just to handle this in "Chat" since I'm just charging my cost ($14) and postage. (I do it just for fun, and also because that'* what "Old Farts" do:

PM me for more details, if you're interested. I will definitely send to Canada or other parts of the world, if I can.
(BTW -- I have by now acquired a lot of the electronic components for direct hook-up of the "OBD1.5" cars to a PC computer. If I'm successful, I'll put together fairly inexpensive kits for BC members)
