HAVE YOU TRIED TO EXTRACT CODES?.........I'M PRETTY SURE YOU HAVE "OBD I"........1996 WAS WHEN OBD II SORTA ENTERED THE SCENE

YOUR TEST CONNECTORS ARE PROBABLY ON OR CLOSE TO THE DRIVERS FENDER UNDER THE HOOD.....

COULD BE YOU HAVE A STORED CODE

THIS "CODE TESTING" WOULD BE MY 1ST COURSE OF ACTION...BEFORE YOU THROW MORE PARTS AT IT

IN MY AREA OBD II CAN BE READ BY MOST AUTO STORES FOR FREE

THE ONLY STORE HERE THAT CAN READ OBD I -- IS "AUTOZONE".......THIS COULD BE TRUE FOR ALL OF THEIR STORES............IT'S A FREE SERVICE HERE

REGARDLESS WHERE YOU GET IT CODED---WRITE DOWN THE ACTUAL NUMBERS----DON'T JUST RELY ON A PARTS HOUSE'S EMPLOYEE'S "OPINION" OF WHAT IT MEANS.....THEY CAN BE INTERPRETED DIFFERENT WAYS

BRING THE CODES BACK HERE (I MAY NOT BE MUCH HELP) BUT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER TECH WHO MIGHT BE.......OR YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO GOOGLE THEM

"YOU TUBE" IS ALSO A GOOD PLACE TO GO TO FIND OUT HOW TO TEST SOME OF THE EXPENSIVE SENSORS, BEFORE YOU JUST BUY 'EM

SHOULD YOU NEED PARTS....THIS MAY HELP

MIGHT AS WELL GET A DEAL---HERE, OR ANOTHER PLACE THAT PROMO CODES WORK AT........"A124" WAS WORKING YESTERDAY!!!...SEE THIS LINK

DON'T JUMP ON THAT TILL YOU FIND OUT WHETHER YOUR CODES MIGHT POINT ELSEWHERE

KEEP US POSTED
