This is the SD 7.3L forum, so we are from the generation where OBDII is common. The '94 was pre-'96 - '96 was when the OBDII was put into full effect on most vehicles. I don't know how well the pre-'96 OBDII ports work.

You can try to set the protocol manually - SAE J1850 PWM. If the MODIS unit asks, the truck is non-OBDII compliant. I'll explain that last part: There are "universal" PIDs with universal addresses - we have extended PIDs with non-universal addresses.

Could this cause a transmission mis communication?

I found this thread and hope you guys are still on here. I currently have my truck at a transmission shop and it is failing to communicate with any of thier equipment. I had some shifting issues with my 4r100 and took it in . The overdrive light has been flashing. But the truck wont communicate any codes. They are going to pull the pan and manually inspect and proceed to electrical testing if the pan shows no obvious issues. If it would just communicate the problem we would be ok. Any ideas? Thank you for your help.
