Isn't a 1991 OBD0? You shouldn't need a code reader to pull the code. There is a small screen on the ECU. Or is the 91 DA an OBD1 computer? Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Give us this day our daily fuel, and forgive us our hooning, as we forgive those who hoon against us, and lead us not into chrome accents, but deliver us from rice. For thine is the Cam, and the Piston, and the Rod, for ever and ever. Or until they break.. Amen.

I have a '96 and also need to reset my check engine light. How do I do it myself? Would rather not take my baby to a place like AutoZone and if there's a way to do it w/o disco'ing the battery, that would def be preferable.

You've got a 96 so your ecu is OBDII. Just go down to Autozone and have them plug in a reader to check the codes. They don't disconnect the battery.

You need a engine code reader to reset it. Why don't you want to take it to AutoZone (or anywhere like that)? They'll do it for free, and it'll only take them a minute to do it.

If you don't have a reader, the only way to do it yourself is to disconnect the battery.
