Default 94 ssei which scanner?

ok this is just plain weird... i have figured out from the forum here that my 94 has an obdII aldl connector on an obdI computer with no diagnostic lead to jump in the aldl. soooooo correct me if im wrong but mr paper clip is out, most of the parts chains use code READERS not SCANNERS so they are out as well.... ok, well what do you guys recommend for a scanner for this beast? i get intermittant solid ses lights from time to time.

I would have been willing to bet real money that 95 was the wierd year for OBD. 94 should be straight OBD 1, shouldn't it?

Mine would read it, but I'm not sure you want to spend 400 bucks. BTW, I have an Auto Xray EZ Scan 5000 - comes with cables to read anything with OBD (to present day. I've heard rumors OBD 3 is coming)

The 94 requires the same scanner as the 95 as it has the OBD 2 codes and cable but the tool has to read the OBD 1 94-95 Bonnevilles..

The 94 has the OBD1.5 freak of nature PCM

Dangit! You gotta pay extra to get a reader or scanner that'll do both (or all three, depending on how you look at it)

The 93 - 94 Bonnevilles have the same PCM and the same 16 Pin OBD2 connector... Even uses the OBD 2 codes... But its an OBD 1 application... Very diffrent protocall then the OBD2... So yeah you have to be sure that the tool will read the 94-95 GM'*

I just did a search and found that a number of people here are using an Actron CP9110 for up '95, with the CP9150 kit, which has all the cables needed. I am not 100% sure on it all, but that seems to be correct. Also, it seems that you can often find these for reasonable on ebay.
