Autozone won't be checking your codes with the OBD2 reader. In fact, no OBD2 reader will work for 94/95 pcm'*. GM, for these models, used what is called "manufacturer specific" codes.

Actron made a scantool that will work. Ebay is your best bet to find them. Someone will chime in on the model number.

The Actron scanner that my local Advance had was primarily an OBD2 and would scan 94/95. I thought it odd..I think it'* the 9145.

Where are you located at. Maybe....just maybe, a club member has a scanner that can read your car and would be willing to hook you up (That is why it is a good idea to put your city/state in your "Profile"...... so it shows up below your avatar as "Location:" )

<IIRC, the usual going rate for a club member code scan is one beer......data scan and initial diagnosis is 3 beers......full on trouble shooting is a six pack, mimimum>

Maybe odd, but correct. It'* the CP9145 model and you don't have to buy an extra cable.

But willwren likes the Actron CP9110 scanner better for '95 and older Bonnevilles (that'* the model I have and it does give a ton of data). It'* pretty inexpensive on eBay right now from "tradervar". It'* missing the '94-'95 16 pin OBD1.5 cable, but I provide that (the "Buttermore cable") at cost as a club project.

The 9110 takes the win since it records data, and the 9145 doesn't. It also gives ALL information, where the 9145 lacks some parameters.
