Nobody here uses pc-based scanning on OBD1. Good luck, and be sure to give us feedback.

I have an OBD1 scanning software I got off of obd2.com. If you call up their cust service they can help find the right stuff for your car. It works out pretty good for me, but I haven't ever taken the time to fully get involved in it and find everything that it can do.

http://www.obd2.com/scantool/scantool_domestic.htm Maybe this one? I will say though, it'* not cheap. Although when I got mine a couple years ago it was about $400 for the base package, and then I added on a bunch more to be able to scan other makes and models as well.

here is something you might want to check out
i dont know if someone could make the cable for a 94/95 car but if they could this would be a very nice alternative to the scantool

that would NOT work as it is for 96+ cars with OBDII. 94-95 cars are OBD1.5
