If your datalink connector looks like the above picture, you can ground terminal B, turn the key on, no further, check engine lite goes to flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes.

If that is a hybrid connector for the crossover years, I can't help you. My info shows more than 1 wire going to the data link connector? There might be a decal under the hood that says if your fully compliant, obd1 or 2.

That may require a special code reader?

I just picked up a 1995 Lumina (Manufactured 12/1994) and the SES light comes on after driving for 5-10 minutes. I went to do the "jumper" trick to get it to flash the codes. It has the OBD1 connector as pictured above but only has 2 wires going to the A & M positions. I just wanted to let you know that I also have that problem and I'm interested to see an answer on this one on how to get it to flash the codes, or if there is a special reader?

Thanks,

dp

That's wierd because I think that's what mine is doing. It comes on if I'm accelerating at a decent pace or if I was cruising on the freeway and then just let off the gas abruptly (like when I approach an on ramp or something) and then stays on until I turn the car off and restart it. I might try looking at the EGR and see if that helps.
