Now here's a geeky question: what type of OBD does the Solstice have? Is it CAN or VPW. Maybe something else?
Cartoon in our local paper the other day had three infamous inventors with their names in the caption: Mr. Watchamacallit, Mr. Thingamabob, and a Mr. Doohickie. I still LOL thinking about it.Editguy said::lol: That reminds me of a scene in an old Bogart movie, but I can't recall the name. It was about fifth columnists and it was a mixture of drama and comedy.
What, and I don't :glol:Editguy said:Hey, I resemble that remark!!!
A Buick, come on man, I live in LA LA land, no Buicks allowed. :lol: J/K of course. But I still don't know what you mean....I'm off too google......Editguy said:Have you never seen a Buick? If you have, you've likely seen the portholes.

The 2005 GM cars with Ecotec are using CAN compliant OBD II, I would assume the Sol will be compliant as well. It is important to note most cars support multiple interfaces, so those VPW scan tools will probably still work with the Sol. By 2008, all cars must have CAN compliant diagnostic ports. In case the alphabet soup isn't getting to you yet, CAN stands for Controller Area Network, VPW is Variable Pulse Width, both define how the diagnostic tool talks to the car's computer.
Check out this page for information on determining what interfaces a car supports. Maybe someone on the forum can take a picture of the OBD connector for us? BTW, I own the auterra scan tool and it rocks!
