Just an update:

I should be receiving a large order of cables and connectors this Friday (April 6), so I should be able to start playing around a little and figure out some of the unknowns.

The J1962 (16 pin OBDII-type) connectors were ordered several days ago from China, but it was through eBay and paypal, so I expect they'll get here soon. May have to give them a "jingle".

I've not bought an Actron CP9110 or cp9145 yet, so I may need a willing "guinea pig" to acid test the first ones. I will also need to talk to our admin about how to handle this in the forums or by PM. I'm doing it just for costs and fun .

I'll chime in and say that I was Slug'* guinea pig for his cable. He sent me one and it worked great! He made another for me w/ some improvements and I have yet to test it, but I'm sure it will be just fine.

Default home-made OBD cables -- Update

I've been out of town, but I've been PMing both of you guys`(bigeric and bonnie94ssei), as you know, since I got back.

This is a probably a good time for an update:

I've been assembling what I call the "Buttermore" cable -- the homemade cable that Bill wired up a year or two ago that allows you to hook up the Actron CP9110 scanner to '94 and '95 Bonnevilles, or any other GM cars of that era that had the hybrid so-called "OBD1.5" diagnostics. The Actron # for this cable was CP9115, but Actron doesn't make it anymore, nor even the CP9110.

You can still get the Actron CP9110 on Ebay for very economical prices, but you don't necessarily get the CP9115 cable (or even the GM CP9111 cartridge, for that matter) and you can't buy it (the CP9115) anywhere that I know of..

My cable looks like this:

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...old/CABLE3.jpg

It'* exactly the same schematic as Buttermore'*, but physically different. As bonnie94ssei mentioned, I have been making some improvements on mine, and will start sending it out to any BC members who need one, as soon as the last testing is done this weekend.

I have willwren'* ok just to handle this in "Chat" since I'm just charging my cost ($14) and postage. (I do it just for fun, and also because that'* what "Old Farts" do:

PM me for more details, if you're interested. I will definitely send to Canada or other parts of the world, if I can.

(BTW -- I have by now acquired a lot of the electronic components for direct hook-up of the "OBD1.5" cars to a PC computer. If I'm successful, I'll put together fairly inexpensive kits for BC members)

I would be more than interested in this if it comes to fruition. I'll keep an eye on this thread for further developments.

Slug is not online extremely often so be patient with these. As having one of the first, I can say these are excellent cables. Shoot him a PM if you're interested.
