ABS codes cannot be read from the ALDL connector. You must connect to the EBCM (electronic brake control module) directly. This is a different connector, and requires yet another cable. The EBCM is located under the carpet on the firewall, to the right of the gas pedal, forward of the center console.

That'* exactly what I wanted to know Will, thanks. So I would need a 16 pin cable to connect under the dash, and another as you mentioned to read ABS codes. I wonder if these cables can be purchased on Ebay?


Thanks

Does anyone know if this will work on a 95?

Called Mechanic Dan.. being that he was at the dealerships during all the Tech I vs Tech II years. He said that technically 95 is considered ALDL and not OBDII because of the protocol. The Tech I works on ALDL and would need the right cable to work on the 95.

In theory ...it should work with the right cable.
Yes with the proper card it will read the 95 along with the ABS codes and will talk to the Modules from the RAC to the DERM on and on... That would really be the ultimate tool for the OBD1 GM cars


I stand corrected on the ABS... Willwren got me there... lol

Frank just give the tool to me

I doesn't belong to me, I've had it for about 6 months but was never able to use it cause I don't have the proper cable. When I offered to return it my friend said he wasn't in any hurry for it. I was thinking of purchasing it off of him, but didn't know what to offer since I didn't want to lowball and offend a friend.

Frank... Can you do me a favor? Snap a Pic of the Connection for the cable... Wonder if the Actron cables will work with it

And I have seen those go for as much as $500 Us on E-Bay with most of the cards and cables..

A DB15 connector. Any way to get a pin out of the cable? I could probably make one.

I saw this listing on Ebay and I can't believe what they're asking for it.

Sale price on this one seems more fair to me - especially considering the age of OBD1.

Man oh Man, $475.00 US. I still find that a lot of money for that scanner. That sure seems a lot for what that scanner can do. What am I missing here?
