Default 95 SSEi codes - how to get em?

How do you pull codes on a 95 SSEi? Is there a way to do it without a scanner? Is it DRBII? What is a good scanner to get?

I just put mine on the road today, and all is well (aside from I don't think the previous owner thought balancing tires was important), but the traction control is on until I start driving, then it clicks off and I can't click it back on. I'm figuring there should be a code stored guiding me to the problem, but how to get it?

I'm a lazy old chrysler guy who'* used to clicking the key on and off 3 times, this is my first GM in 9 years

Thanks,

Dan

The '95 is OBD1 compliant but uses the OBD2 connector. The only way to get the codes out is to use a scan tool. Now for the TC, I believe that the only way to extract codes from this is thru the dealers scanning equipment (or spend a small fortune to get your own TC scanner ).

I have the exact same problem with my '95. I had it scanned (about $75us) and it came back to be a faulty control unit which is about $700 from the dealer. Somedays it turns off right away and others it will go for 45 minutes before shutting off.

Hope this helps some.

and welcome to the forum!

Thanks! I appreciate the tips.

Where can you get a factory service manual set for these?

They are available on e-bay every now and then. I believe there is a site you can buy them from but I don't remember what it is. I'm sure someone else (eg: willwren, jr's3800, demi-god, etc...) will know where.
