Do you have an Autozone near you? They used to give out a metal key that was shaped just right for plugging into the connector under the dash. If not, a paper clip uncoiled and bent into the right shape will work.

I got one of the free ones, It came with a booklet that listed the most common codes. But last time I was there they wanted to sell that same key. A bent paper clip works just as well.

Chairman- post the code numbers so the "big boys" can help you get it fixed.

OSG- does the ELC compressor have a valve for an air hose?

OP, Post the codes and we'll tell you what they are, Or you can search the club for DTC ##, such as if you get a code 18 search for "DTC 18".

sometimes autzone will do the test for you. last time i went the guy did it for me and told me the code and printed me off a description and everthing, just ask them if you arent confident doing it yourself and trying to read the codes.

do all these cars have the port under the dash for the tester to plug in to because thats what they said when I called autozone as long as it had the port and I cant get in there to look. but maybe someday the kids will get time to take it and see whats up but they so dang busy working it is hard, It really sux being paralyzed and can't do it myself because thats what I always did before.

i would say they all do, because all cars would need the codes checked somehow



check your rpo codes and see if you didnt get the port as an option J/K

Yes, Your car does have the ALDL under the dash. Drivers' side like all cars. OBD1.
