    Short and Simple: The standard don't exist until 1996 which called OBD2.
    If you are good enought (software and hardware) and if your car has OBD1 and if you are good at you maybe able to find some info regarding to that exploder.
    With that many AND , you are better off forget about it. If you still want that stuff, sale the car and get one at is 1996 or newer.

            what type of engine do you have
            also look under your seat (i think thats where it is) for your ECU (on board computer) not the one you put in and check to see what your ecu number is do some searching i think ull find u might be able to integrate OBD-I
            i just hooked up my cable today and am working the bugs out i have a 1990 and just your standard 5.7 lt 350

                  Check under the hood.. towards firewall. You have EEC-IV.

                  6-pin connector with auxiliary 1-pin connector which is shorted
                  to ground to run KOEO/KOER tests.

                  Also, you may have another 6-pin connector for ABS tests.

                    This is not a GM ALDL connector... as described previously.

                        yea your ecu numbers will point you in the right direction you need to google your *** off thats how i found these sites
                        find out what type of engine /ecu u have and then ull know if its compatible with any of these software programs.

                        Winaldl
                        and this site had links to alot of stuff too

                        EDIT actually thats for chevys ur gonna need to look up EEC-IV i think is the protocall your ecu uses

                            I just ran a test on my 94 Explorer with the V-6, using just a jumper wire and the check engine light. The test connector thing on my Explorer was just behind the power distribution box, which is on the passenger side at the top of the wheel well, easily accessible. Look at this site for instructions on how to do it. You dont need a scanner or anything, just a piece of wire.

                            Good luck.
