    Scanner is fine! Because I also had it scanned at Autozone. They the truck is not sending any information?

    What Error Code is displaying on the scanner?

    Have you disconnected the battery for a few minutes, reconnected, and determined if the error code goes away?

SOURCE: check engine light for a 1995 pontiac sunfire

OBD 1.5 OBD 1.5 refers to a partial implementation of OBD-II which General Motors used on some vehicles in 1994 and 1995 (GM did not use the term OBD 1.5 in the documentation for these vehicles - they simply have an OBD and an OBD-II section in the service manual.)
For example, the 94-95 Corvettes have one post-catalyst oxygen sensor (although they have two catalytic converters), and have a subset of the OBD-II codes implemented. For a 1994 Corvette the implemented OBD-II codes are P0116-P0118, P0131-P0135, P0151-P0155, P0158, P0160-P0161, P0171-P0175, P0420, P1114-P1115, P1133, P1153 and P1158.[1]
This hybrid system was present on the GM H-body cars in 94-95, W-body cars (Buick Regal, Chevrolet Lumina ('95 only), Chevrolet Monte Carlo ('95 only), Pontiac Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme) in 94-95, L-body (Chevrolet Beretta/Corsica) in 94-95, Y-body (Chevrolet Corvette) in 94-95, on the F-body (Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird) in 95 and on the J-Body (Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire) and N-Body (Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile Achieva, Pontiac Grand Am) in 95.
Depending on the year and the vehicle, a car with the OBD 1.5 system may have either the older OBD-I connector, or the newer OBD-II connector, but they are electrically identical to each other.[citation needed]
The pinout for the ALDL connection on these cars is as follows:
180px-obd-connector-pinout.png magnify-clip.pngFemale OBD connector pinout 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 For ALDL connections, pin 9 is the data stream, pins 4 and 5 are ground and pin 16 is battery voltage.
Additional vehicle-specific diagnostic and control circuits are also available on this connector. For instance, on the Corvette there are interfaces for the Class 2 serial data stream from the PCM, the CCM diagnostic terminal, the radio data stream, the airbag system, the selective ride control system, the low tire pressure warning system and the passive keyless entry system.[2]
An OBD1.5 has also been used on Mitsubishi cars of '95 '97 vintage.
An OBD1.5 has been used in some 1995 Volkswagen VR6's (Juice Box's GTI)

SOURCE: OBD code 0401 (1997 Toyota Camry 4 cyl)

There is a VSV (vacuum switching valve) , usually mounted on the back side of engine block, under the intake manifold, as well as the map sensor, that can also cause that code if one or the other is faulty. It takes some pretty detailed troubleshooting to confirm this in some cases, so if that's not in your line of work, you may have to have it properly diagnosed, or take a 50/50 shot at which one first.

SOURCE: 1997 GMC Sierra Ignition Switch Replacement

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

1997 Venture ABS light is on but has no code reading

Not all OBD-2 scanners are created equal. Most only read power-train (engine/transmission) codes and are not capable of reading ABS codes. Some scanners even have a specific button you have to press to get ABS codes. Try a different scanner. I know places like Auto Zone will scan codes for free but not every store has the same reader. The AZ nearest to me has the ABS capable scanner while the one on the other side of town can't read ABS codes.

Where is the fuse for check engine light

You really need to include make and model, engine, etc. as well as the OBD code reading you are getting; with the other information available, you should be able to do a search on your vehicle + the error code and get an idea of what you still need to do.

My check engine light is on. How do I turn it off?

On the 1997 Lincoln Town Car, it has an OBD-II computer on it where an OBD-II scanner can clear the engine light by erasing the codes, after repairs are performed on the circuit that originally tripped the check engine light.

One can buy an OBD-II engine scanner for under $100 from Sears or Walmart, or a local auto parts store, or even or

I have a 96 gmc sierra. The OBD reads trouble code p0154. No activity in bank 2 sensor 1. I replaced the O2 sensor. How will the check engine light go off? do i unplug the battery for a certain amount...

You need someone with a programmer to reset it. Auto Zone used to reset at no charge but now laws have changed in some states because dealers were taking cars with check engine lights to them to have reset so they could sell cars without having to actually fix them. Hope this helps ,Good luck

1996 gmc sierra will start but wont turn over replaced fuel pump and fuel filter

If the check engine light is on, rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repair(s). If no ignition along with fuel, the crankshaft/camshaft sensor may be defective. The above scan should identify the problem.
