Yesterday evening a friend of mine that owns a shop scanned my car with a snap on scantool n he said the computer wasnt communicating with the scantool. What do you think that was? Also I wanted to know what scantool I could get to scan my car

I would think something was wrong with the guys scan tool since pep boys was able to read your codes. So do you have a 16 pin connector for your scan tool to hook up?

Iam not real familar with aftermarket scan tools I mostly used the Tech2 and tech1 scan tool all the gm dealers used.I have the actron obd1 and obd2 scan tool with the domestic obd1 connectors and universal obd2 connector. It only does domestic obd1 cars iam not real impressed with it But it reads codes on the engine with some live data and reads transmission codes.
