With the obd 1 car to check your codes without the cable... there is a gas pedal trick. You turn the ignition to the on position and you push the gas pedal in and out completely 5 times. Your check engine light should turn off and then start flashing in sequence. You write down the sequence and there you have your code.
you have to do it kinda fast..as soon as you turn the ignition on press and release 5 times fast. You will know it works because the check engine light will begin flashing. It took me 2 or 3 times to get it to work the first time i tried too.
