Default Converting OBD II connector to OBD I on 95 Bonne

I have a 95 Bonneville, and I know that it has a OBD I interface but has an OBD II connector. Is there any way I can convert the OBD II connector to OBD I? I have a OBD connector but do not know where to hook the wires up. Thanks in advanced!

I think it could be possible, but I dunno if I would do it. Mainly because I think there'* a lot of stuff that you could mess up if you weren't carefull, and the reliability of the interface after messing with it could just be a PITA. I personally would just leave it alone.

You might be able to put the plug on, but pulling codes will be kinda impossible. You will still need a good scan tool that consist'* of more than a paper clip in a snazzy box to pull the codes. I'd suggest against doing this.

Don't muck with it. Get the right scantool and cable.

Not gonna work. You just need to splurge for an OBDI scantool, that has an OBDII connector.
