!985 Corvettes are not OBD2 systems, you need a early GM scanner to read codes or you can do it manually. Just google "code retreval OBD1 GM cars". Youtube will have it as well and take the scanner you have back.

OBD2 Link Error comes on when scanner reads.


You may have the wrong code reader. Try another one and see what happens. It could also be a blown fuse, check all your fuses, in particular the one that controls the cigarette lighter.
