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.

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.
