    94 camaro 3.4L diagnostic software

    I just got an ALDL cable that connects my laptop's serial port to the ECM via the kick panel under the steering wheel, but I can't seem to find any software that works for my car. They're all for the z28. Where can I find software for the 1994 3.4L automatic tranny camaro?

    Thanks yall

    Are you just trying to read codes and stuff, or do you want to edit the PCM's programming?

    I'm just trying to read engine codes. I'm getting a check engine light, and i'm pretty sure it's the EGR, considering when the light comes on and considering the history of this engine in the camaro. I just want to make sure, cuz I don't want to re-install a working $200 part.

    plus, hooking up a laptop to your car is super cool.

    so, yeah, I just need to read engine codes.

    Not sure if it would work on your car since its newer but it works on my fiero. Worth a shot
    Watch your feet if it throws the danger to manifold code.

    stuff

    1 more question:

    All I need this program to do is to read SES codes. Will any program work for that, or does it have to be specific for the 3.4L Camaro? I think mine's too old to be able to edit the ECM anyways. I have the cable and I tried a few programs, but no information would read at all.

    Also, what baud is the 3.4L camaro, 160 or .. theother one.. I forget.

    Aight ya'll thanks for the help.

    did you try the program i linked to?
    i think your car is too new for it. I didnt see it on the engine support list. Its not really that great to read codes with anyway.
    just go to advance or autozone to get your codes checked for free

    i tried to go to autozone, but they just try to flash the ECM with the key thing, which doesn't work. They won't listen to me when I tell them you have to use a OBD1 scantool. that, and the dealerships and stuff want to charge a billion dollars to hook up the stupid scan tool.

    actually, I just replaced to stupid EGR and it's been running a lot better. I got a code on the HW, but it went away after a minute. I don't know what that means. Maybe it was a false warning or something.

    I don't want to mess with the EGR system anymore.

    I'm not aware of any software that works on the 3.4

    I know this Actron tool works on the 3.4 because I had one hooked up to mine at the shop. You can get one on eBay for around $250 and it reads both ODB-I and II.

    The KAL Equipment 9640B should also work, and is fairly inexpensive.
