What code reader can I use for a 94 gm that uses only the a and m pins on the data link. There is no b terminal. Not all obd 1 readers work on 94 or 95 gm

Do you
have the same problem?

U can buy key tools that plug in. Then you read the flashing light on the dash for codes. Recheck the connector because a and b are the right wires. Just buy a test key and plug it in. Ty for using 2carpros

They had the newer 12 pin connectors with and without that pin. The ones with that pin you could use a jumper and flash the codes out. Without that pin you have to use a scan tool to read codes.
