Same question: when you say the scanner does not work,does it not even power up or just does not read?
OBD 2 carries its own power supply(orange wire behind plug) OBD 1 needs the scanner powered.
OBD 1 plug is square,OBD 2 plug is (trapezoid kind of) but yes the oddball year will have the new plug but actually OBD 1. At the dealership it is tech 1 for the old one and tech 2 for the new stuff. I don't think it's flashable.
