You need an OBD1 scanner with a 16 pin connector. Your car is not totally OBDII compliant.

Autozone always does that...

It'* like Will said, you have an OBD-1 computer. But you need the 16-pin cable, not the 12-pin cable.

that is exactly what i thought. they have them confused. they keep saying that obd2 came out before obd1 and i keep telling them they are wrong!!! Do they listen, no. they just make people like me go pay at dealership for a scan.

Forget Autozone. This is a typical problem with them. Go to another chain or larger independent auto parts store. Most will scan for free, or cheaper than a dealer.

I gave up on Autozone not too long ago. They don't know a brake pad from a fist in the face.
