Yeah, I think they even sell little OBD-I thingys at Wal-Mart that basically just short those two terminals. Think they are around $30.00....a complete ripoff.

no I was being serious until I found out odie is from germany


yeah u just need a paper clip like capt said.
uh autozone wont even do anything with a car older than 96, if it aint obd2 they dont care. i HIGHLY doubt they would have the procedure in their system or train their employees for it.
I went to autozone twice - 2 different locations before I found BC to use their "little metal key paperclip thing" to flash the codes and then tell me what it meant.
heh must be a west coast thing. over here the autozone people are complete nimrods.
