In 1993, the computer systems were obd 1. which generally needed battery power to run scanner. 1996 up is obd2 and powers up scanner through data connector. not sure what kind of scanner you have. is it powering up ok and not communicating or cant get scanner to turn on?

Flashing check engine light means don't drive it. It can damage things. Get a code scanner from auto parts store, rent it buy it etc. run the scanner to see what it says

Why won 't computer communicate with code checker


Check the cigarette lighter fuse. This is what powers the DLC. If the fuse is good, check and see if the lighter works. If not, you have a bad wire. Code readers have to have power from the car. Most scanners have there own power and will read the computer, unless the data wire is bad or the computer is bad.

You must use a OBD 1.5 scanner. Even though the scanner is the same shape as the OBD II it is not electrically the same. You may have to take it to a shop with an older scan tool.

run an inline fuel guage in the fuel line with a clear line, look for bubbles, do this witha an inline spark detector, that should tell you wether its fuel or spark shut down, either of these will not give you a code, i have spent many a day on intermittents, sometimes you just have to go back to baasics

Scanner problems


more than likely it's because the internal program is not interfacing with your vehicle. most scanners are programed with updated cam/cad where the smaller code readers only have OBD1 and 2 most vehicle computers after 2003 no longer use obd1 and 2...please rate the solution
