95 chevy beretta 3.1 codes

Postby YoshiNote » Sat Aug 11, 2018 12:26 am

I'm sure this has been asked many times and I'm sorry that I couldn't find it on the forms but what do I need to read the codes for a check engine light on my 95 Chevy Beretta with a 12 pin connector with only A & M existing I included a picture of the port I'm hoping I can just get a connector for a computer and run software to read it any help would be great thank you so much

Unfortunately, '95s are a serious =@ (I have two of them). Not OBD-1, not OBD-2. You need a scanner with an OBD-1 GM connector, that specifies it is compatible with the '95 GM products. Many older OBD-1 Code-Readers were nothing more than a fancy housing with a two-pin connector and an LED, that simply jumpered the diagnostic pins in the link you have pictured -these won't work on a '95. I have an Inova brand OBD 1&2 scanner that reads OBD-2 data AND OBD-1 codes (no data though). I also have an old Snap-On MT-series 'brick' that works great for the older cars, codes and data. Either way, nothing there is cheap. Older Chevys with the OBD-1 were awesome -plug in a paper-clip and count the 'Service Engine' light flashes -there is your code. GM just got stupid in '95 for some reason. :Search:

OBDI cables from ebay with the cheap software will read these ECU's

They will typically come with software that will read the ECU.

Example of something that should pull your codes.
