You can get an adapter so that the OBDII will fit the port on a OBD1 vehicle. They run around $20 bucks last time I saw one.

good deal, I'll be checking ebay for one.
Figured for $50 I could use it for both OBD-I and OBD-II scanning.

Can it read OBD I codes?
Also, as noted, a special scanner is not needed to read OBD-1 codes on these. A simple jumper wire and the ability to count is enough to get trouble codes.'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB

No, if you want to read codes off of an OBD I system you need to get the GM Tech 2 with the OBD I adapter, then you can read codes, run tests, clear codes, program the PCM to some degree, and monitor all live input data. I've done it many times with my 94 chevy using a Tech 2, you can usually find them cheap on Ebay since they are outdated.1994 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext Cab 350 cuin TBI in dark Chevy blue
