The OTC should work. I have a OTC 4000e that I use for my cars. Only issue is it does not seem to like the MP Stage II logic module in my 87 GLHS as it gives me codes when key damce shows no codes. But works great on my 89 CSX.
I.will be honest, I do need.to spend ore time reading the manuals and trying to better understand mine.
I think money well spent.
Thank you Randy. I will try that out.Plus, 1987 Lbodys use 1986 electronics so must be entered as a 1986.
FWIW, all my 86 GLHS' and 87 CSX/Lancer/Shelby Z MP modules read fine with a DRB II.Only when I went to custom cals and 3 bars did things get out of sorts. Seems like I kept hearing lots of people coming up with code 42 on S-60 harnesses though. On the code 42 cars, car would run fine, just throw that code.Thank you Randy. I will try that out.
I just assumed the OTC was looking for the factory LM and I am running a MP Stage II LM.
Do you know if the MP should throw codes or read just like stock? Also, how is the 87 GLHS viewed by a scanner? T1 engine or T2?
If you are just looking for the code that is generated, you do not need a scan tool. Just turn the ignition switch on and off three times quickly and count the flashes of the Power Limited light. There is a longer pause that indicates the end of the first number and the start of the second number. 55 indicates (5 flashes pause 5 flashes) the end of the stored codes.I am looking for information on a scan tool for my 1986 turbo z. The service manual says ATM tester c-4805, I cannot find one online. I did find an OTC 2000 scan tool with a Chrysler cartridge. Any recommendations or advice on what to purchase?
Funny, I get maybe 16 on the highway with my Duster and am working on swapping a G3 into it to try and improve that number (besides the added power).Need to get my turbo Dodge finished with all their mods so I can drive them again. 34city/40+highway mpg got me through the gas prices of the late 2000's but driving a hemi in the 20's is killing me at 16.5 city/21 highway
