Service engine light came on and stays on, I need to diagnose problem for smog

(1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera)
in Huntington Beach, CA on February 28, 2014
Beginning in 1994, GM began the migration to the ultimate goal of all vehicles being OBD-II compliant, and my Oldsmobile is in the 20% or so that were sent over prior to 1996. Actually, it is a hydrid, mostly OBD_II compliant, yet packed in an OBD-I form. I have observed this by the changes in the ALDL connector. only 12 pins and cant use the usual jumper from A to B. so can modern scaners (OBD-II help me?

Yes some are converted to the 16 pin DLC.

So if I take my car with the 12 pin DLC to say Pep-Boys, will they have the adapter to go from 16 pin to 12 pin DLC? Or should I go to a more Professional service center?

It needs to be scanned with an OBD2 scan tool that will read the '95 model.
