Just wondering if the ol' paper clip trick works with these cars? I have an intermittent ses light and want to figure it out. Also, I've looked at the aldlcable website, but can't figure out which cable I need, or how to make a cable for myself.

It appears not... I can't say for sure, but it seems like the 1.5 isn't just a rewired 1.0... and I'd really hate to short out my PCM my mistake!

I tried it on a different OBD 1.5 car ('94 Regal) and it didn't work.

I jumped the 9 and 4 ports on my Si's OBDII port to pull ABS and EPS codes. If this worked on my '95 I'd have saved myself a good $400 in diagnostic fees over the time I owned it.

OBD 1.5 is worthless. I really wish it didn't exist. frown
