A '95 huh? I remember hearing something about that having an OBD II connector, but an OBD I system. I know one of the admins know more about that, but I can't remember which one. Try 95BonnevilleSESC (the name says it at least!)

I knew it was something like that. That means the you have to trick the scanner, right? Make it think it'* a 96 or something?

You have to trick it somehow? A buddy of mine has the nice pricey scanner that supposedly links to the OBD II, and when he tried it had a link error just like the OBD I scanners at autozone. If anyone knows this procedure let me know, I would be very interested!! Thanks

Well I just got it back from the shop and they pulled the codes and informed me that two of my 3 coil packs are bad, as is the O2 sensor. They wanted to charge me $334 for the whole thing, I went to Autozone, paid $90 for the parts and a few minutes with some tools, had her all fixed up. Thanks for the help all!

For future reference,

I have the same unfortunate situation that you do. Its an ODB2 connector but an ODB 1 computer. my local Murrays has a code reader that is for 'loan' that will read both odb1 and 2 computer. It uses One unit to read the data, and gives you two adapters...

problem solved..


check murrays

Yes.... some readers work. Basically the system is OBD I with a freaky baud rate (data speed) and an OBD II connector. If you get a program and a laptop, and $5 worth of electronic parts then you can make a reader that works for your system.... but that also requires being electronically inclined. Anywho... Glad you got it fixed!

i find it very strange that you were told that two of the three coil packs were bad. if that were actually true, i don't think the car would start and if you did get it to start it wouldnt be too easy. i had a 88 se that had one coil pack die and it would crank over for 5 secs before it would start. even then it wasn't really bad on gas. just hard starting and a little miss. i also had a 92 ssei that had a bad o2 sensor and it was terrible on gas. i was getting about 280 km'* on a full tank and it had no power (like it should've). what happens is the computer dosn't know how to mix the fuel air ratio so it sets a default setting (limp mode) to keep the car running, thus the bad gas milage and miss in the ignition system.
