I have the same car... took it to our local autozone and they had no problem finding it. It was located under the steering wheel someplace. Not exactly sure of the location, but they didn't have any problem locating it.

I have a 1995 oldsmobile 88 and the computer needs to be reset.

Hi Dave.

You can perform a reset of main control module (ECM) disconnecting the battery terminals for a couple of minutes. That will reset the check engine light until the problem occurs again. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed.

The proper way to reset the DTC codes is using an OBDII scanner. The job can be done at the dealer place or at any authorized garage for a small fee (half hour labor). In US the scan and reset can be done for free at Autozone. If possible go to the nearest Autozone, ask to do a code scanning take note of codes and ask to reset the ECM.

Finally, you can reset the codes at home using a scanner tool like this:OBDII Scanner - U480.

Have you had the engine codes pulled. Usually when you replace an O2 sensor you would have to replace the converters

Check engine light came on Autozone said needed EVAP purge solenoid?

The problem is, Autozone doesn't use a scanner. They use a scan tool otherwise known as a code reader. I suggest get another opinion at a shop with an actual scanner. They would be more helpful to you. Don't just throw parts at it.
