    AutoZone, or other parts shops will read it for you. Because they want to sell you parts.

    Most of them will do it for free, just call around and ask if they charge anything to find out why your check engine light is on. If you have a Pepboys in your area, they normally pull the codes and give you an estimate for free.

    No. Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eagle Talon were OBDII compliant in 95. Check your production date.

    Read info below. Source - http://www.pocketlogger.com/index.php?pid=faq_gs_whichcar

    OBDI (pre '96 cars)

    OBDI is not a standard. While most people refer to cars that aren't OBDII as OBDI, there were no specifications set forth as "OBDI". Cars not manufactured to OBDII spec were not required to adhere to any rules as far as the design of ECU communications. Each manufacturer was free to create there own way to 'talk' to the ECU. It is not as simple as having a cable that plugs into the port. You need to know what to 'say' to the ECU and you need to know what the ECU is going to say back. None of this information is public knowledge. Any information that is out there has been reverse engineered, a very time consuming task. Due to this fact, just because we have a "DSM" version that works with an "OBDI" car doesn't mean it's compatible with other OBDI cars. We may or may not develop a logger version for other popular OBDI cars. At this point no immediate plans have been made.

    OBDII

    The US government mandated that all cars manufactured for and after the 96 model year be OBDII compliant. Some manufactures picked up OBDII compliance as early as 94, but typically 95 or 96. If your car is 96 or later, it's OBDII compliant (but still may not work, keep reading). If its 94 or 95, OBDII compliant cars will say so on their under hood sticker.

    so does anyone know if i could use a circuit tester to read the codes basing them on long blinks and short blinks instead of using a multimeter or a buzzer.

    TCU Codes

    im trying to pull my tcu codes.
