Question about 1995 Eagle Summit

1995 eagle summit "Check engine light"

I have a 1995 Eagle Summit 2 door coupe with a 1.8 and recently the "check engine light" came on. I have taken the car to four different ASE certified shops including the dealer and no one can get a reading on their scanners. It has an OBDII system and half way through their scan test it has a message that says there is a link error. Is there another way to get the computer codes without going through the OBDII system? The connector has 16 pins but only 6 wires going to it. I have also used a volt meter so I could count the number of sweeps but I just get a voltage reading and no sweeps. I am at a loss here and would greatly appreciate any help or ideas you could give me.
Thank You. D.Buckner

     I appreciate the helpful tip about turning the ignition off and on. This also works on the older Chrysler,Plymouth,Dodges. I failed to mention in my earlier letter that I did try this but it did not work either. I am sorry for the over sight but thank you so much for responding so quickly.

Annoyingly, the '95s have the OBD II connector, but are not OBD II compliant. With the ignition off, ground the top pin on the wide side of the port (pin #1). Turn on ignition (don't start it), the check engine light will flash 2 digit codes in order, then repeat.

I know on the Talon model, if you cycle the ignition switch ON OFF ON OFF ON within 5 seconds, then the power loss/check engine light will flash out the ALDL trouble codes with a 4 second pause in between each trouble code as follows:-

lets say for instance trouble codes 23 and 45 were stored. They would be displayed like this:-

lamp illuminates for 2 to 3 seconds as a bulb check then goes out

lamp then flashes 2 times, pauses, then flashes 3 times

4 second pause

lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 5 times.

Worth a try?

1995 Eagle Summit AWD cranks but won't start...battery, fuel pump, spark plugs replaced ...why? Is the problem the multiport fuel injector relay? Where is this relay located?

Sounds like a timing belt has snapped. If it is an interference engine, the engine could be ruined (pistons hit the valves and bend them). Check gates belts to see if it is an interference engine. Belts normally snap at 80,000 to 120,000 miles.
