This vehicle is OBD1 COMPLIANT, but it has an OBD2 connector. Is there a scanner I could buy for what has been suggested as obd1.5? How about jumping pins to get the mil to flash?

Thanks, Steve

That is obd1 certified and it has a 16 pin connector that only 6 pins are used and it has the same shape as the obd2 connectors but obd2 code readers do not work.

that takes a special adapter and scanner is only way to read codes if it has 12 pins as it should cross A&B with paper clip watch engine light flash with key on count flashes.
