    is that OBD2? ('96+ IIRC)

    Not sure whats offered for OBD2 stuff, but winALDL is kind of the "standard" when it comes to free diagnostic software for non-OBD2 systems.

    winaldl

    But as you'll see on one of the links, '95's are the newest model supported.

    There is no free scanning software for OBD-2 systems. You have to get the cable which has firmware built into it in order to interface a laptop to the PCM.

    WinALDL will not work with his '99 Tahoe, sorry /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    http://autotap.com is what I use on my 02 TA but it's not free. It's what all the f-body guys use with ODBII.
