The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
There have been numerous questions regarding serial data communications with certain vehicles. These vehicles require adapters between the Tech 1 and the Assembly Line Data Link (ALDL).
For all 1986 model year and newer Camaros, Firebirds and Corvettes with either the 5.0 or 5.7 litre engines it is mandatory that adapters between the Tech 1 and the ALDL be used to communicate with certain modules.
The part numbers for the adapter are P/N 3000091. The title on the cable is listed as "Tech 1 OBDII Vehicle Interface Module (VIM)", and TA02149 and is called a GM PIN E adapter.
Concerns which encompass no communication with the ECM or the CCM will be corrected with the use of these adapters.
Use this adapter between the Tech 1 and the vehicle ALDL to communicate with the serial data line.
