Good afternoon
I have a 1995 Chevy Lumina APV with the 3.8L V6. My check engine light has been coming on for a while now but now she is starting to run rough.
I looked under the hood on the emission sticker & it says OBD1 so I figured I would jump the A & B terminals to get the codes.
When I went under the dash the A terminal was there but no B terminal there are only three pins the A top right one under it & another on the botom.
Now it looks like an OBD1 connector the emission label says OBD1 but there is no b terminal.
So my question is can I jump this & if so what pins do I use.
I have been looking for a code reader but everyone I have seen says 96 & latter $69. Not bad then I found one that reads both OBD1 & 2 this is $200. A little much.
Thank you for your time & help!
Will.

Hi, do you have 16 pin datalink connector? If so, MOD says to use jumper on pins 5 & 6, FOR MIL CODES.

Then you turn key till dash lites come on, no further. The mil starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes.

Good Evening,
No it has the 12 pin ALDL this is what I can't understand as the A pin is top far right the B pin should be right next to it but it is empty.
In the past this is how I use to jump the OBD1 A & B.
Having said that I checked out a code reader for OBD1's but when I read the manual it said the only 95 Chevrolet it will check is the Caprice 4.3L.
It went on to say even though some 95's had the 8-12 pin connector it was a diffrent ECM used!
This code reader was only $30.
So do I have to buy one that checks both OBD 1 & 2's at $200. I just don't get why it says under the hood OBD 1 no B pin & now I read diffrent ECM.
Thank you for your help!
Will.

I wouldn't buy anything, unless I was positive, it would work on your vehicle. Some hybrid diagnostic systems are called OBD1 1/2, I just don't have anything on it.
