      I CONTACTED INNOVA ABOUT THE 5512 SCANNER I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT AND HE SAID THEY HAVE NO ACCESSORIES TO FIT THE SCANNER. HE SAID MY CAR IS WHAT YOU CALL A 1.5, MEANING NOT OBD1 OR OBD2, BUT IN BETWEEN. HE SAID I NEED A (GM TECH 1 TOOL). I WENT ON GMPARTS.COM AND DID NOT FIND ANYTHING THERE. OR IT'S THERE AND I DON'T WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR OR DON'T RECOGNIZE IT. I'M CLUELESS. I'VE PUT 43 NEW PARTS ON THE CAR. THE BATTERY IS DRAINING WHEN IT IS RUNNING, SECURITY LIGHT ON, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON, BATTERY LIGHT ON, WATER TEMP LIGHT ON, ROUGH IDLE. I'VE SPENT OVER $3000.00 IN PARTS ALONE PLUS THIS SCANNER THAT COST ME $279.00 PLUS TAX THAT I CAN'T EVEN USE. I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET AT THIS POINT, OR A SCANNER THAT WILL WORK ON MY CAR. I DON'T CARE WHAT THE PRICE IS FOR THE SCANNER IF IT WILL ELIMINATE THIS HEADACHE. THANKS FOR THE COME BACK, I REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT. THIS OLD VETERAN IS GETTIN PLUM TUCKERED OUT.

      You need a Tech 1, in particular?  Or you need a scan tool that works with OBD-1 such as the various Snap-On '2500s or the Solus family (Solus, Solus Pro, Solus Ultra, Solus Edge, Solus Legend) I used an MTG2500 (similar to the older, less-expensive MT2500) for about twenty years.  When I killed it, I bought a used Solus Pro on eBay; $350 delivered to my door.  Services GM from 1980 1/2 to 2007, plus other domestics, and some Asian cars.  I got a reasonable assortment of Asian adapters and retained the domestic adapters from my old scanner.  Battery and charger, operator's manuals on DVD, various cables and cords, and a bigass suitcase to carry it around in. There are other, competing products to the Snap-On scan tools, but I have zero experience with them.   If you just HAVE to have a Tech 1, you'd better develop an eBay search for 'em.  Good luck.

      I NEED A GM TECH 1 TOOL FOR MY 1995 BUICK RIVIERA 3.8 SUPERCHARGE VIN 1 L67 SERIES 1 CAR

      Not sure I've ever tried it, but I'd expect the cruise to work in Overdrive, or Drive.  (4th and 3rd)   Every time the cruise has been goofy on my 92/93 Luminas, it's due to a broken vacuum hose.  The tubing gets brittle, cracks, and then the cruise system doesn't have vacuum to run the actuator.  Both cars have multiple splices to the vacuum tubing.
