I have a CEL and I was trying to pull the code up. I tried two different scanners and both would not connect. I checked the pins and they all look good and solid. I checked my cig lighter fuse and its fine. then I disconnected the battery to try and get everything to reset. Still will not connect. Good thing is I no longer have a CEL because of the battery disconnect (for now).
What else can I check? Any suggestions?
