It should be under the hood in the back on the driverside and if not there maybe under the dash on driverside

Blazer service engine soon light reset


If it is an early blazer, pre 1996 and has the OBD I system, you can reset the computer by removing the positive battery cable and touching it to metal or 10 seconds to ground the system. Then hook it back to the battery and if the light comes back on then you need to jump the "A" and "B" terminals to read the code. If your blazer is 1996 or newer then you will have the OBD II system and will need a scan tool to reset the light.

Obd


the 16 pin is only to read and reset light, to do any work or look at data you need the 38 pin plug.
the 16 pin scanner any auto part store sells them, but you have a mercedes, and in 1993 OBD II didn't exist.

1996 Chevy truck code p1351 no start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I have a code reader but there is no hook-up for my 1992volvo960 2.9litre engine.My check eng. light is on.How do I read codes now?


OBD 11 scanner reads from 1996 to later models, your car is obd 1 and needs obd 1 scanner there is other way but for that you need the automobil manual repair.

I am trying to connect a scanner ob2 to check engine light that is on but not reading also tried taking positive cable off battery then drove it for 30 min light still on what can i do


1996 is the first year that OBD II was mandated. Some cars will have the OBD II port but not be OBD II compliant. Does it have the 12 pin port or the 16 pin port?

Check engine light is on and cant find the problem


Need to take your vehicle somewhere and have the codes read for an OBD I system and that should reveal your check engine light problem and the possible source of what is wrong with your truck. You could try Autozone, but more than likely their scanners usually only read OBD II systems, meaning, cars after 1996. Give them a shot if their in your area.

Code scanner - OBD cable adapter


If your car is a 1996 it should hook up. If it is a late 1995 then it won't and there is no adapter. It runs on a completely different diagnostic system. If it is 1996 VW's plug looks a little different than the plug on your scanner but it will plug on to it.

I need to know how to manually retrieve dtc codes without a scanner.What are the steps of this procedure.I have a 1995 chevy cavalier 2.2 l with a check engine light on.The pin terminal has 16 pins.


This info is from the tech manual.....because you have a 16-pin DTC connector, you have the OBD II system in your car. This is cut and pasted info from the tech manual:

Fig. 2: A Tech 1® , or equivalent scan tool must be used to retrieve codes from 1996–00 models with the 16-pin DLC connector


142a36f.gif
If you look on your doorjamb and read the sticker, it will tell you the year of your car...and if it was manufactured AFTER a certain month, then you have the 96 model...and from what you are saying, you have a 96 model because it has the 16-pin connector and not the 12-pin connector that the 95 and earlier had.
