    I thought I'd try this before dumping load's of money into my 89 Blazer..
    Does anyone in the Austin area have a GM code scanner to diagnose my truck's problem? Or does anyone's friend's have one?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    hmmm Rocko, do you really need the scanner?? Why can't you just go to Autozone, and get one of the keys and booklets and put it in the mode where it spits out the codes (light flashing)?? Isn't this the same thing that the scanner will tell you??

    Can't help ya locally, but a good idea for future use is getting one for your toolbox. Pricing for an AutoXray part number 10110 at a Kragen/Schucks/Checker is $159.99. Money well spent.

    Good luck..........and congrats on your marital plans!

    I got one at Wal-Mart. It was like $20. It's nothin fancy, you just plug it into the ECM diagnosis receptical below the steering wheel to the left (near the e-brake release lever). Then, the check engine light flahes you the code and you look it up in the book it comes with. It saved me $$$.

    <font color=blue>If you have a paper clip, you dont need a code scanner. Jump the two terminals on the right of the scanner hookup together (key off) and count the number of flashes beore than after the pause (for example, 1 flash- pause- 2 flashes is code 12.) Post the code and I'll look it up later when I get home
